My name is Natascha Rietdijk. I am a PhD candidate in Philosophy at TiLPS. I investigate so-called "post-truth" politics: a type of political rhetoric which seems unconcerned with truth. My research focuses on the question what this newly popular style of doing politics means for the way people acquire and share knowledge.
I am interested in various topics in ethics, political philosophy, moral psychology and social epistemology, including among others:
I have taught courses in Philosophical Anthropology (ancient and modern), Social and Political Philosophy, and Contemporary Political Philosophy, as well as various courses for non-philosophy students including Philosophy of Science, Business Ethics, and an introduction to the history of philosophy.
