I’m a Dutch philosopher and director of the International School of Philosophy. Subjects i’m working on, are animal politics, bildung and popularisation of philosophy. My last book from 2015, also my PhD thesis, is titled Een beestachtige geschiedenis van de filosofie (A Beastly History of Philosophy). Here you can find a summary.

Some of the chapters of my earlier book from 2009, Democratie voor dieren (Democracy for animals), were translated (by Rik Schraag). You’ll find them here.

I’m presently working on the Agoramodel, which was first developed by RenĂ© Gude, the Dutch ‘thinker of the nation’ and my close collegue. I helped to develop the model, which is a educational tool that helps you to broaden your scope and to find new angles in debates.
