She was one cleverest philosopher in Latin America, a really hard worker and very good adviser with her studentsReport
Maite will be missed by philosophers all over the world. She was a regular visitor to Auckland, and we were lucky to have her around – one of the best people I’ve ever met with whom to discuss philosophical work in progress. My sympathy to her UNAM colleagues and to her family.Report
