Sander Voerman | Philosophy
I am a philosopher working in the fields of ethics, health, and technology. My current research work involves two projects: Redesigning Psychiatry at Reframing Studio; and Medical Trust Beyond Clinical Walls at Eindhoven University of Technology.
My academic interests cover a wide range of philosophical topics, including free agency, selfhood, morality, responsibility, consciousness, and the philosophy of health care and technology (concerning both somatic and mental health). I have developed a theory of the psychological nature of normative reasons for action in my PhD thesis The Normative Will (Tilburg University 2012). I have also published a textbook on free will, Vrije wil: Discussies over verantwoordelijkheid, zelfverwerkelijking en bewustzijn (Lemniscaat 2011, with Tjeerd van de Laar), which is currently being used in Dutch highschools.
