My name is Dries Deweer. I am a political philosopher and vice-dean of education of the Tilburg School for Humanities and Digital Sciences. My research focuses on the philosophy of personalism and the thought of Paul Ricoeur (1913-2005) in particular, with an emphasis on questions regarding the meaning of citizenship and political responsibility. My doctoral dissertation (at KU Leuven), was awarded the five-yearly Mgr. Arthur Janssen Prize for Christian Ethics. The results of this research were pubIished in the book Ricoeur’s Personalist Republicanism. On Personhood and Citizenship (Lexington 2017). Together with KU Leuven political scientist Steven Van Hecke, I edited a book for a general audience on the contemporary social and political relevance of personalist philosophy (De mens centraal. Essays over het personalisme vandaag en morgen, Pelckmans Pro 2017). Recently, I published on populism and on the political ethics of compromise.
