Research interests

As a political philosopher and ethicist, my research is situated at the borders of ethics and economics. I have worked on topics such as rationality, self-interest and reciprocity, but also on inequality, justice, paternalism and the moral limits of markets. Rececently, I have focused primarily on conceptual and normative questions surrounding 'nudging', ways of influencing people's behavior by making use of recent psychological and behavioral insights.


Justice and Inequality

Filosofie van Mens en Maatschappij (with Willem van der Deijl and Roos Slegers)
