my work

I do research in the field of social philosophy and political theory and write essays about social developments, trying to contribute to a better society by illuminating social and political developments. I also do graphic design of logos and publications.

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. Currently, I am writing essays on this website and am a member of the commission of the European Social Week.

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.
