About

Upon receiving his Ph.D., as well as an American Studies Diploma, from Liège Univertity in 1979, Lorenzo Peña was appointed full professor of the Pontifical University of Ecuador. He went back to his native country, Spain, in 1983. In 1983-87 he taught philosophy of language at the University of León. In february 1987 he became a senior scientist at the CSIC, the Spanish Superior Council of Scientific Research. In 2005 he was promoted to the highest academic category, Science Professor. He founded the Jurisprudence and Logic Research Group, JuriLog. His field of study had meanwhile shifted from the confluence of logic, metaphysics and mathematical logic to, first, the logic of norms and, later on, philosophy of law. He became a lawyer, being awarded a Master degree in juridical science from Madrid Autonomous University in 2007. He is also a member of the Madrid Bar association of advocates. Although he had been a Hegelo-Marxian in his youth, ever since he enrolled as a graduate student Lorenzo Peña has remained a stauch adherent to analytical philosophy.
