Prof. Gert-Jan van der Heiden examines problems from metaphysics and ontology in light of recent developments in phenomenology, hermeneutics and contemporary French thought. He is interested in the motive of speaking for the other in hermeneutics. He studies how the concept of contingency determines the landscape of contemporary ontology. With others he investigates why the Letters of Saint Paul are so often read in contemporary philosophy.
