Welcome to my philosophy site!

Falk HamannI am currently a post-doctoral research fellow in philosophy at the University of Regensburg. My chief interests are metaphysics and social ontology, but I also work in moral philosophy, philosophy of law, and philosophy of religion. Aristotle and Thomas Aquinas are the philosophers who have most influenced my work.

I received a PhD in philosophy from KU Leuven and the University of Leipzig in 2017. In my thesis, I presented a systematic account of human community that combines ideas form Analytic Social Ontology and Aristotelian-Thomistic philosophy. From 2009 to 2012, I was a fellow at a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School for the Humanities Cologne.

My current research revolves around the concept of goodness in both moral philosophy and metaphysics. In particular, I am interested in the epistemological question how we recognize that something is good in the first place and how that enables us to understand what goodness is.
