I am professor of ethics at the University of Amsterdam and chair of the Capacity group of Philosophy and Public Affairs. Currently, I am also chair of the Department of Philosophy.
 

From 2003-2010 I was Socrates-Professor for the Foundations of Humanism at Leiden University. Before, I taught philosophy at the Free University, Berlin, Germany, and at the University of Bremen, Germany.  

I studied philosophy at Tuebingen, London, Oxford, and Berlin and completed my Ph.D. in 1988 at the Free University Berlin (on theories of meaning in analytic philosophy and hermeneutics). I finished my habilitation in 2001 at the University of Bremen (on the value of privacy).

In 2003/2004 I was a fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study (Wissenschaftskolleg) in Berlin; in November (2011) I was a fellow at the  Macquarie University Research Centre for Agency, Value and Ethics, Sydney. In 2015 in November and December I'll be a research fellow at Melbourne University, Law School.

 

I'm a founding member and member of the board of the Amsterdam Platform for Privacy Research (APPR), and since october 2006 program director of the research program Philosophy and Public Affairs (Amsterdam School of Cultural Analysis, ASCA).

Since 2009, I have been a co-editor of the European Journal of Philosophy.

My board memberships also include the Editorial Board of the book series Essex Studies in Contemporary Critical Theory  (Rowman and Littlefield) and the International Advisory Board of the Institute for Social Research, Frankfurt/Germany.

I teach Bachelor and Master courses in ethics and social philosophy, and I also teach a course on Literature and Ethics.

 

My research fields include theories of freedom and autonomy, theories of privacy, justice and equality, ethics and the good life, and feminist theories. My current research is concerned with theoretical and practical problems in autonomy and I'm working on a book on Autonomy in Daily Life.
