My academic interests are in Kant and Kantian philosophy, as well as in moral and political philosophy. I am the author of Kant and Cosmopolitanism: The Philosophical Ideal of World Citizenship (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2012; paperback 2013) and Fortschritt und Vernunft: Zur Geschichtsphilosophie Kants (Würzburg: Königshausen und Neumann, 1995), and I have edited Immanuel Kant, ‘Toward Perpetual Peace’ and Other Writings on Politics, Peace, and History (New Haven: Yale University Press, 2006). 

I am currently directing the NWO-funded research program "Universal Moral Laws: A New Approach to Kant and Kantian Ethics" ('Free Competition' program in the humanities, 2019-2023). I previously directed three other NWO-funded research programs: "Morality beyond illusions: Re-assessing the philosophical implications of empirical studies of moral agency" (2009-2013), "Kant on morality and empirical knowledge of moral agency" (2011-2015), and "The moral relevance of weakness of will: A dispositional account" (2012-2016). I am a co-PI on the NWO-funded 'gravitation' consortium grant, "Sustainable Cooperation" (2017-2026).
