Andrés  Saenz de Sicilia


I obtained my PhD from the Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy (CRMEP) at Kingston University in 2016. I have held teaching and research positions at University College London, Newcastle University, University of Roehampton, University of Amsterdam and the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). I currently sit on the executive committee of the Society for European Philosophy.

I work at the intersection of continental philosophy and social and political theory, with a particular focus on the tradition of critical and dialectical philosophies that begins with Kant and spans through to Adorno. I have also written on and translated the work of Latin American philosopher and cultural theorist Bolívar Echeverría.

I am currently completing a book tracing the development of theories of subsumption in Kant, Hegel, Marx and beyond, due out with Brill in 2020. Alongside this, a new research project explores issues related to the status and representation of violence in modern societies. The project addresses (i) the relation between violence and abstraction, as mechanisms of social domination and (ii) the integration of violence (both as act and image) within economic processes - what has been termed ’narco-accumulation’.
