Pauline Kleingeld has been awarded a research grant by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) for her project 'Universal Moral Laws: A New Approach to Kant and Kantian Ethics'. Pauline Kleingeld is professor of ethics and its history at the Faculty of Philosophy.

Universal Moral Laws

This research programme is devoted to investigating the political-theoretical background of central concepts of Kant's universalist ethics, such as 'moral legislation’, 'autonomy', 'human dignity', and 'freedom of the will'. On the basis of the resulting new interpretation, the group will also examine the prospects for developing a convincing Kantian ethical theory.
