Bio

I am a philosopher with interdisciplinary and varied research interests as well as a passion for teaching. A common thread running through my writings is the concern about a ‘culture of narcissism’ (Lasch) and hence ‘minimal selves’. The corresponding danger of collective egoism and weak democracies is hence a recurring theme of mine. For my academic formation I am indebted to the ancients as well as the moderns. My conversation partners include Plato, Cicero, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Herbert Marcuse, Gabriel Marcel, Jacques Maritain, Martin Buber, Simone Weil, and many others. Both my commitment to the ideal of democracy and my worry about the reductionism involved in the therapeutic turn inform my current research on the digitalization of health and wellbeing.
