Philosophy, Politics & Economics
"No one can be a great thinker who does not recognize,
that as a thinker it is his first duty to follow his intellect
to whatever conclusion it leads"
John Stuart Mill, On Liberty

I have a blog on Substack. It is called "The Archimedean Point". Do not hesitate to subscribe (it's free!)
Research topics, current projects and interests
My academic work broadly belongs to the so-called field of "philosophy of economics". I have a general interest in understanding how knowledge is produced in economics by investigating the nature and implications of the methods, theories and assumptions used by economists. This general interest is in particular applied to institutional economics, game theory, choice theory and normative economics. Crucially, I see economics both as a subject to study and as a set of tools, concepts and theories to be used in the philosophical inquiry.
I am currently working on a book project tentatively called Social Choice and Public Reason . Details on the project and drafts of the chapters are available here. I have also recently started to work on epistocracy from a PPE perspective. The general idea is to inquire whether a 'liberal epistocracy' is possible. Details can be found here.
More information can be found on my publications list and in the work in progress section. My complete CV can be downloaded here.
My article "Liberal Perfectionism and Epistocracy" has just been accepted by Public Affairs Quarterly. The preprint version is available on request.
My article "Consent and Behavioral Public Policies: A Social Choice Perspective" has just been published online by Res Publica.
My article "In Search of a Stable Consensus: Rawls's Model of Public Reason and Its Critics" has just been published in the Journal of Ethics and Social Philosophy.
