Hi, I’m Maarten.

Hi, I’m Maarten.

I research the constitution of knowledge. How does each of us come to accept something as true and how do societies come to some kind of public understanding about truth? How can we apply insights from cognitive science and social epistemology to everyday opinion-forming?.

Once a week, I send out an update on what I’ve learned along the way. It can include my best essays for the week, interesting resources I’ve found, questions I’m pondering, and more.
