"Recommendation of Javier Moreno, Germanico: Senor Moreno interviewed me on line for his compilation the New Evolutionary Enlightenment.I found his questions both intelligent and penetrating. I enjoyed answering them and being caused to think in depth about serious and sometimes fundamental matters. He has considerable talent in an area in which interviewers are prone to be lamentably superficial".

Javier is editor of "The new Evolutionary Enlightenment" (http://ilevolucionista.blogspot.com), which is a blog concerned with the science and philosophy of Mind.

Javier interviewed me as Editor of La Nueva Ilustración Evolucionista in a most knowledgable yet empathic way.

Javier interviewed me for his website http://www.ilevolucionista.blogspot.com/ in 2009. He has built up an impressive collection of interviews there with almost every key thinker in evolutionary psychology. This in itself is testimony to his professionalism, dedication, and intellectual curiosity. 26/09/2011"
 Dylan Evans, Lecturer in Behavioural Science, University College Cork. Ha escrito numerosos libros de ciencia sobre evolución, emociones o el efecto placebo Entrevistado en LNIE el 16/07/2009


Javier Moreno, aka "Germanico," has performed an important service in making the work of scholars and writers in the field of evolutionary biology and allied fields accessible to the wider interantional public by designing and curating the website La Nueva Ilustración Evolucionista / The New Evolutionary Enlightenment. From my own experience as one of the participants and a reader of dozens of other entries, I can attest that the interviews are conducted in a penetrating fashion with the objective of extracting the most distinctive aspects of each writer's work, the translations (between English and Spanish as required) are done in a careful and lucid fashion, and the physical production is of a high aesthetic quality. In my opinion, Javier has made an original and useful contribution to world culture.30/09/2011" 
Stuart Newman, Professor, New York Medical College. Es uno de los más destacados científicos de la Biología Evolutiva del Desarrollo. Entrevistado en LNIE el 01/06/2010.


"This website is an extraordinary labour of love, with detailed and penetrating questions to many of the leading figures in evolutionary biology. It is a tribute to the quality of the questions, and their creative online presentation, that so many notable evolutionary biologists have answered, not merely quick answers, but detailed and comprehensive essays in many cases. This is an unusual and meaningful achievement. 04/10/2011".
Nick Lane. Bioquímico y Profesor honorario en el University College de Londres. Es autor de varios libros de ciencia, entre ellos Life Ascending, tras cuya lectura le entrevistamos el 18/02/2010 en LNIE.

 "Recuerdo bien la entrevista que me hicieron en la Nueva Ilustración Evolucionista, una de las mejores y más sensatas que me han hecho.  El planteamiento de la misma y la precisión y rigor de ese planteamiento dan como resultado el periodismo científico mejor que he leido en nuestro pais.  La lectura de entrevistas a otros cientificos, que conozco personalmente razonablemente bien, confirman muchísimo estas impresiones. En resumen, calificaría su trabajo como 'excelente'.24/10/2011"
