Graduate Prize Fellow
Email Address:

Camilo Martinez is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Philosophy. His research combines topics in social philosophy, practical rationality, and the philosophy of normativity. His dissertation is on social norms. It aims to provide a unified answer to various philosophical questions surrounding the interdisciplinary study of such phenomena: what they are, what function they serve within human groups, how they guide behavior, and how they emerge and change. He has an additional research interest in Latin American philosophy, particularly in the use of Aristotelian ideas in 16th-century debates about the appropriate treatment of the indigenous peoples of the Americas. Before coming to Princeton, Camilo earned his M.A. in philosophy from Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia.
