Javier González, Research Director of the Philosophy and Humanities School, developed the investigation “Ontology of Matter: Trails of Creation” in Liechtenstein, after obtaining one of the 10 scholarships offered for Latin America by the University of Oxford.

Javier González Camargo, Research Director of the Faculty of Philosophy and Humanities and Professor at Sergio Arboleda University, was awarded one of the ten scholarships offered by Oxford University to Latin America. The scholarship allowed him to undergo the investigation “Ontology of Matter: Trails of Creation” at the International Academy of Philosophy – IAP of the Principality of Liechtenstein, between June and December of last year.
The Sergio Arboleda University professor was benefited by the program “Science, Philosophy and Theology in Latin America” of the University of Oxford, the best university in the world according to the international study of 2016 “Times Higher Education World University Ranking”, which promotes research and spread of the ideas of the region in matters related to Science, Philosophy and Theology.

“It is always necessary to have an adaptable spirit and to be willing to face all kinds of obstacles, from those related to bureaucracy and law to those that deal with different food”, recommends Javier for launching an academic mission abroad.

Once you’ve moved forward, he highlights, you can take the best from the experiences and appreciate every detail of formation of the new destination. “What I liked the most was to get in touch with first class international teachers “, says Javier of his career so far.

During this time, he had the opportunity to meet neighbor countries, although he spent most of the time working at home and in the institute, riding a bicycle, and walking in the alpine landscapes of Liechtenstein.

Sergio Arboleda University, he says, was very important in the whole process of his investigation. “When I was an undergraduate student, humanities were very important, more than now, for that reason I studied them in depth, and it was a great advantage because every corner in Europe is rich in terms of history and culture.

Additionally, he claimed that thanks to the opening to internationalization the University has, the students and teachers tend to adapt themselves more easily abroad.

For that reason, this Sergio Arboleda University alumnus expresses his gratitude to his alma mater for his undergraduate training, especially in the field of investigation, and for all the tools, support and flexibility that allowed him to carry out this research in another country.
Despite being so far away, he remembers that the University, friends and colleagues always kept in touch with him. “On July 14th, 2016, the national holiday of France, I was in the city of Antibes on the French Riviera, to watch the fireworks of this commemoration; however, it was getting late and there was a lot of traffic, so we stopped at a small beach. We tried to continue our way but the traffic turned much worse, “inexplicable”. When we got to the room and saw the missed calls I had from Colombia, we understood the reason of the traffic jam: the terrible attack of the truck driver in Nice, that had hit dozens of people, had just happened”.

Javier does not hesitate promoting international experiences among the students and the community and he gives his best advice: “Language learning is fundamental, both in daily and academic development, neither of the two areas can be neglected. “From there on, it is important that the student “dives into the water”, because there are many opportunities and plenty of them are being wasted. It can be a difficult yet challenging experience, which in any case is worth the effort”.
Javier will be visiting the University of Oxford next May in order to socialize the research that he completed in Liechtenstein, through a lecture delivery.
