Chon Tejedor was born in Valencia, Spain. As a child, she often moved countries: her family lived in Spain, Romania, the United Kingdom, Hong-Kong and Japan. She studied in the French system, finally passing her French Baccalauréat with the top award (“Mention Très Bien”) at the Lycée Français Charles de Gaulle, in London. She was then an undergraduate at the University of Oxford, where she was awarded a BA degree with Honours in Philosophy, Politics and Economics, and a postgraduate at University College London, where she completed an MPhil and a PhD in Philosophy. 

Tejedor’s academic and teaching career began in the United Kingdom, where she lived for more than twenty years. She was Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Oxford for twelve years and Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Hertfordshire for four years, before finally moving to the University of Valencia (UV) in 2017. She is currently a senior member of the Valencia Philosophy Lab, at the Philosophy Department of the University of Valencia.


Tejedor works on epistemology, conditioned responsibility in agency-stultifying situations, intercultural understanding and Wittgenstein. 

She was for several years Editor and Executive Committee member of the British Wittgenstein Society, where she remains a named scholar. She was also Trustee of the Oxford-based Philosophy Fellowship Fund originally founded by Bertrand Russell, G. E. Moore and Julian Huxley. 

She is currently Director of the Colección filosofías of the Editorial Pre-Textos and member of the Editorial Board of the series Anthem Studies in Wittgenstein (Anthem Press).

Her publications include two authored monographs: The Early Wittgenstein on Metaphysics, Natural Science, Language and Value (Routledge, 2015) and Starting with Wittgenstein (Bloomsbury, 2011)
