Theses

I wrote three Master theses in fulfillment of my degree.

  • In the first, Action, Intention, and Criminal Justice, I argued in favour of an Anscombian account of action and intention as opposed to the current causalist orthodoxy spanning the criminal law, which construes of actions as willed bodily motion.
  • The second thesis was titled Causation and Norms. In it, I assessed the notion of causation from the lenses of law, philosophy, and psychology, and – by means of several survey-based experiments – uncovered troubling biases in our causal cognition, with severe downstream effects for the law.
  • The third thesis, A Vindication of Methodological Plurality in the Law, argued that the law ought to take seriously developments in adjacent fields (e.g., linguistics, philosophy, behavioural economics) and supplement the juridical toolkit with methods native to those.
My Bachelor thesis concerned itself with the normative implications of modern neuroscientific findings for the criminal law. The full-text can be found on my Researchgate profile here.
