Research

My current research project is a monograph on grace and the corresponding virtue of graciousness. More generally, it is about love.

I wonder why it is so hard to be good. So I also write on akrasia (doing exactly what you know you shouldn't do), hatred (of others, of human beings in general, of oneself), regret, shame, despair and the epistemic impulses.
