Staff Common Room
2nd Floor

Would those interested in attending the seminar please let Martin Krygier (m.krygier at unsw.edu.au<mailto:m.krygier at unsw.edu.au>) know ahead of time.

Wibren van der Burg studied law and moral philosophy at Utrecht University. He is professor of Legal Philosophy and Jurisprudence at Erasmus University Rotterdam. Before he moved to Rotterdam in 2008, he was professor of Jurisprudence at Tilburg University. From 1986 until 1994, he worked in Utrecht at the Centre for Bioethics and Health Law and at the Department of Philosophy.
The central theme of his research and teaching is the interaction between law, ethics and society. A special focus in his research is how law and politics should deal with the dynamics of cultural and religious pluralism. A second focus is on the methods of legal research as a hermeneutic, argumentative, and empirical interdiscipline.
He recently finished a book The Dynamics of Law and Morality. A Pluralist Account of Legal Interactionism (Ashgate 2014). He has written 7 books in Dutch and co-edited 6 books, including The Importance of Ideals (with Sanne Taekema), Rediscovering Fuller (with Willem Witteveen) and Reflective Equilibrium (with Theo van Willigenburg). Some recent articles: 'What Is Neutrality?', Ratio Juris (forthcoming, with Roland Pierik), and 'Essentially Ambiguous Concepts and the Fuller-Hart-Dworkin Debate,' Archiv für Rechts- und Sozialphilosophie, 95 (2009) 3, 305-326.
