Professor of Philosophy & Ethics, Author

When I was young I gave the wrong answers.

As I got older I asked the wrong questions.

But I kept searching and that's how I became a philosopher.

Who am I?

I am a professor of medical philosophy and ethics. I am also an author and columnist and provide consultancy in the field of ethics and philosophy for companies and private individuals.

I am affiliated with the medical faculty of Ghent University and regularly publish and speak at home and abroad, both for a specialized and a broad audience.

I was a visiting researcher at Radboud University Nijmegen for five years.

I am also a public philosopher and am regularly a guest on radio and television to provide insight into ethical and philosophical issues. I am also a regular columnist at De Standaard.

In de hedendaagse samenleving worden openheid en het uiten van emoties steeds meer als norm gezien, wat kan leiden tot het verlies van de waarde van onuitgesproken aspecten binnen menselijke relaties.
