He did his BA at University College Utrecht, the first liberal arts college in the Netherlands, and has been a staunch advocate of liberal arts education ever since. He completed his graduate studies in political philosophy at Oxford University, focussing on desert-based theories of distributive justice, and continued this research at Yale University. As part of a research project inquiring into the morally correct remuneration of high public officials, he was Karl M. Loewenstein Fellow of Political Science and Jurisprudence at Amherst College. At University College Maastricht, he teaches courses in political philosophy, and writes about the educational philosophy behind liberal arts and sciences education.
