My research is concerned with systematic questions in the philosophy of Kant and Post-Kantian German idealist philosophy, in moral philosophy, moral psychology, anthropology and aesthetics. I am currently working on a book project on moral character and virtue in Kant, focusing especially on Kant's notion of the Gesinnung (this project constitutes my German 'Habilitation'). In addition, I have been working on a series of papers revolving around the question of whether and in what sense Hegel's philosophy of mind/spirit is a naturalistic position. Most recently, my interest in this context has turned to Hegel's theory of human bodily expression, and the question of whether and in what sense Hegel offers a naturalistic account of expressive bodily processes such as crying, blushing and laughing.
