I am Professor of Philosophy of Behavioural Science at Radboud University in the Netherlands.

I studied philosophy and sociology at Utrecht University and have always had an interest in applying an analytic style of reasoning to questions of human self-understanding, thus crossing – or rather neglecting – the so-called analytic-Continental divide. I wrote my MA-thesis on the philosophy of perception, discussing both Frank Jackson’s and Ernst Cassirer’s work, and arguing that perception is a mode of being rather than a means of acquiring information about one’s environment. In my doctoral dissertation I reconstructed Salomon Maimon’s criticism of Kant’s transcendental philosophy and turned it into a post-Kantian scepticism that I used to criticize assumptions underlying twentieth century Anglo-American philosophy of mind. My dissertation was published as The Antinomy of Thought. Maimonian Skepticism and the Relation between Thoughts and Objects, Dordrecht: Kluwer, 1991.
