Short presentation

Ph.D student in practical philosophy. My main philosophical interests lie in moral and political philosophy. The subject of my thesis is The Liberal Principle of Legitimacy, developed by John Rawls in his later writings. According to this view, political legitimacy is dependent on justifiability to all citizens, but this requirement may be interpreted in different ways. The aim of my thesis is to analyse this view, to develop the most promising version of it, and to assess its plausibility.
