Dr A.S. Kleinherenbrink (Arjen)
Associate professor - Metaphysics and philosophical anthropology
My research in metaphysics focuses on contemporary developments in Western metaphysics, with an emphasis on schools, theories and authors that are associated with continental philosophy. I am particularly interested in the metaphysics of powers and dispositions.
My research in philosophical anthropology concerns the extent to which human beings are story-telling creatures. My work in this domain often concerns adventure stories in a variety of media.
I am open to research collaborations and (doctoral) thesis supervision in the fields of contemporary metaphysics and philosophical anthropology. In addition to the specific topics mentioned above, this could broadly include research within contemporary movements such as speculative realism, new materialism and new realism, or into the work of philosophers in the (especially French) continental tradition.
