I teach philosophy at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf. My core interests lie in various areas of theoretical philosophy and in the teaching and learning of philosophy.


I manage the network "Argumentieren in der Schule" (Argumentation in Secondary Schools) and I'm part of the interactive public philosophy project "denXte", mainly as creator, coordinator and co-host of the podcast "mitgedacht". I'm one of the founders and editors of "LehrGut", a (mainly German) Blog for topics in the teaching and learning of philosophy at universities.


Earlier, I worked at Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena, at Goethe-Universität Frankfurt, at Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster and at Freie Universität Berlin. This is also where I received my doctorate and my master's degree, after a year as a Visiting Graduate Student at Stanford University.


I live in Düsseldorf, together with my wife, the linguist Kilu von Prince, and our son.
