I'm currently researching about rationality and decision models as tools for social scientists; as well as rights as conditioning the reasonability of an action. This implies a contextual conception of rational action that allows contextual reasons to emerge as weights for decision making.

How I can help others

Creo, Agus, que ese es el paso a seguir. No se trata de escribir por escribir en español. Sino de hacerlo cuando esto tenga sentido, i.e., cuando sea útil para el fortalecimiento de la comunidad global o local. Nuestro reto será analizar la efectividad de las diferentes estrategias en las que la escritura en español sea posible. y priorizar aquellas que sean, de hecho, las más útiles.
