Dr Han van Wietmarschen

Research Interests

I mostly work on issues in political philosophy and epistemology. I have written about reasonable disagreement in both of these areas, wondering whether and how political societies should respond to reasonable disagreement about morality, religion, politics, and philosophy, and whether and how we should revise our belief in response to informed and intelligent disagreement generally. Other research interests include political testimony, civic friendship, joint rule, public reason, and equality.

Teaching

I teach the introduction to political philosophy, which is mostly concerned with issues of social justice. In addition, I teach two classes for third year BA students and graduate students, one on equality and another on the epistemology of disagreement. Finally, I teach a graduate seminar that will generally be on a topic in political philosophy.
