Fellow, Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena
Logic and argumentation, philosophy of language, epistemology, philosophy of action, metaphysics, didactics of philosophy
I am Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) in the Department of Philosophy at Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena. My core interests lie in logic and argumentation, philosophy of language, and epistemology, but I also work on philosophy of action, metaphysics, and the didactics of philosophy. At "Human Abilities", I work on two projects. First, I try to explore the prospects for a uniform account of knowledge in terms of abilities to answer questions. Second, I explore the relationship between abilities and virtues (and other character traits), with a special focus on the kinds of abilities or virtues which are relevant for reasoning and argumentation.
