About

Hi there!

My name is Maarten. I’m a 26-year-old Dutch PhD candidate in philosophy at the Central European University in Budapest. I also like to think about why we believe what we believe and decide something is true, both as individuals and as a society. In the spring of 2018, I started to write essays about these topics for a non-academic audience. I’m also active on Twitter.

About a year later, my Medium page receives over 125.000 monthly views and more than 50.000 people read my articles each month.

If you want to join the discussion, I would love to have you:
