Research interests

Historically, my main focus is Immanuel Kant, though I haven't made up my mind yet about whether I should call myself a "Kantian". Systematically, I am interested in the question of what the right or best moral theory is. I focus especially on Kantian ethics as well as Consequentialism. I am particularly interested in working out what the differences between Consequentialist and Kantian ethical theories are and whether different types of ethical theories can be reconciled. I am also interested in duties of aid and overdemandingness, especially in the context of global poverty and global justice. Apart from this, I have interests in applied ethics, political philosophy, climate ethics, Hegel, Aristotle and enlightenment philosophy. 

Much of my past research was concerned with the role of the pre-philosophical perspective for academic philosophy as well as the role that philosophy can play in turn for non-philosophers. I approached these topics largely from a historical perspective (mainly Kant).
