As a metaphysician I try to understand the nature of reality given human freedom. How are stabile institutional structures and necessary (e.g. economic) laws possible if we are free? How is human freedom itself possible, and what is freedom itself? The presuppositions and implications of these questions are approached from a metaphysical, ethical and theological perspective.
