My current research engages with the different theories of corruption (moral and political). I'm especially interested in developing en evolutionary framework for theorizing about corruption. My thesis is that some forms of corruption do not indicate a moral deficiency but are information about defective laws.
Furthermore, the history of political philosophy is one of my passions (e.g. Montesquieu,Adam Smith, Rousseau, Kant and Hegel). In the future, I wish to be more knowledgeable on social ontology and theories of political decay.
