I am particularly interested in issues located at the intersection of metaphysics and ethics, such as objectivity in morals, free will and responsibility, the role of ontology in the justification of norms etc. Apart from a number of contemporary authors, the philosophers I am concerned with most are Aquinas and Kant. I am trying to approach their thoughts with systematic considerations in mind, but in my opinion aiming at historical accuracy is indispensable for a fruitful engagement with the philosophical masters of the past.
