Hans Groen


Since 1993 I have been self-employed doing research in the field of social philosophy and political theory, and teaching in these fields; practicing as a graphic designer; organizing international seminars and conferences.

My aim is to contribute to a better society by illuminating social and political developments. My main interest is the role of identity and of worldviews and religions in how people build up a society. Research was commissioned by universities and social organizations in The Netherlands.

I worked as teacher for universities in The Netherlands (VU University) and Canada (Simon Fraser University and Royal Roads University). I also developed programs for computer aided teaching and I have extensive experience with distant learning.

Next to my academic work, I work as a graphic designer, photograph, and web designer. This creative work is for me closely connected with my academic work. Philosophy and design both challenge one to find creative solutions.
On these pages, one can find specific information on the work I have done, under the headings Research, Communication, Organization; also available is a list of publications.
