About

Max Reyes Lobos is a Chilean psychologist with a degree from the University of Talca and a PhD in Philosophy from the University of Valencia. Throughout his professional career he has worked in public service, psychotherapy and university teaching.

Since 2019 he has been a professor in the Department of General Studies at the Universidad Católica del Maule (Chile), where he maintains his distance teaching role.
Dr. Reyes joined the Department of Political Science in September 2023, as a fellow of the Postdoctoral Fellowship Program of the National Agency for Research and Development (ANID-Chile). As a postdoctoral fellow, Dr. Reyes researches Chilean and Canadian politics from the perspective of Aristotelian practical wisdom.


Teaching


Research

In his research, Dr. Reyes comparatively analyzes Chilean and Canadian politics from the perspective of Aristotelian practical wisdom, examining how practical wisdom can inform the decision-making of statesmen and citizens in relation to constitutionalism and democratization, and the protection of the rights of minorities and vulnerable groups. The aim of his work, under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Maxwell A. Cameron, is to investigate and inform the kind of knowledge that statesmen and citizens need to respond to situations in which rules are not sufficient to achieve the ends that circumstances warrant. In this sense, both in everyday life and in politics, the ability to adapt the rules to the exigencies of the situation will largely determine the correctness of the rule, its flexibility being what allows for fair dealing.
