Mateo Sanchez Petrement
Mateo is a PhD candidate at the University of Amsterdam, where he continues research begun in his Research Masters in Philosophy (also at the UvA) regarding the political potentials of psychedelics. Theoretically, he stands at the crossroads of phenomenology, posthumanism, and marxist-leaning analyses of political economy, amongst others. Central to his work is the category of "experience" in general, and in particular its conceptualizations based on embodiment. This implies situating experiences within the material and discursive contexts that produce them and inquiring into how they become mobilized and oriented towards different political ends and visions.
