Welcome to my personal space where I share materials related to the general problems that I like to think about. One of the most common questions that we encounter in life is "why do we care?" Although it may be considered impolite in some settings, such as a classroom, I believe that it is an essential question to ask. By understanding why we care about a particular subject, such as math or teaching, we can better appreciate its value and relevance. Reflecting on our motivations can help us gain a deeper understanding of our actions and the impact they have on ourselves and others.

Historia de las ideas

In 2002, I had the pleasure of meeting Gustavo Lau, and since then, we have developed a strong friendship. Gustavo is a remarkable individual working in the finance sector in London, with a not so secret passion for teaching. He generously donated a special collection to the library of Universidad Simón Bolívar, which he called "Historia de las ideas." This collection has had a significant impact on me, and I've spent countless hours delving into its contents. I'm grateful to have such a wonderful friend and mentor in Gustavo.

A few materials that bring me back to discussions I have had with Gustavo are:

Teaching and Academia


Politics and crisis

Life, ethics, and spirituality
