My research focuses on the empirical and normative phenomena of group agency and reasoning, and their implications for ethics and politics. My doctoral thesis titled “Norms, Reasons, and Moral Progress” developed a novel normative theory of group reasoning, called “We”-reasoning. In contrast to the widespread view in moral and political philosophy, I show that partial and conformist groups can rationally revise their group norms, under conditions of solidarity, trust, and trustworthiness. My work on We-reasoning has been published in the Journal of Political Philosophy, Analyse & Kritik and through Routledge.
