Personal information

Associate Professor of Ethics
Personal website:

Joined the VU in 2013, with a research project on strategic ignorance - e.g. whether consumers can be held responsible for strategically ignorant wrongdoing (such as meat consumption).

With my group, I’m thinking about responsibilities for collective harms (some info here).

I tend to have Kantian intuitions, according to which we should adopt more sustainable lifestyles since not doing so is not universalizable (see this paper, or a short story that illustrates this view).

Recently, I’ve started to move from individual responsibility to corporate responsibility. Should corporations like Shell help fight climate change?
