Lenin Vazquez Toledo

I'm Lenin (first name) Eduardo (middle name) Vazquez-Toledo (last name). I'm a third-year PhD student at the Department of Philosophy of the University of Arizona. I got my BA in Philosophy at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México) in June 2019. I am also a Marymount School alumni.

I do work mainly on metaphysics, particularly topics in higher-order metaphysics and metametaphysics. My BA thesis was on pluralism about being, the view that there are many ways of being. I also specialise in logic, the philosophy of art, and the philosophy of psychiatry. I am interested in default logic, the philosophy of music, and theories of mental illness and explanation in psychiatry. I have taught the courses 'Minds, Matter, and God', 'Philosophy of Psychiatry', and 'Logical and Critical Thinking', as well as a range of ethics courses.

I love opera (from Wagner's Tristan und Isolde to Gilbert & Sullivan operas), cycling, and knitting, and I do some amateur classical singing.
