Sebastian Hengst, M.A.

Doctoral Fellow


Further Information

I obtained my Master´s degree (Magister Artium) in philosophy from LMU Munich (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität). I am currently a Ph.D. Student at LMU Munich working on a project on metaethical hybrid theory under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Dr. Hannes Leitgeb. Both, my master´s and my doctoral thesis, are funded by the German Academic Scholarship Foundation (Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes).

Current Research Interests

My main philosophical interests are in metaethics and metaphilosophy. My PhD Project attemps to develop a novel metaethical hybrid theory that circumvents the problems of both cognitivist and non-cognitivist accounts concering normative thought and talk. My broader philosophical interests are in philosophy of language, ethics, epistemology, normativity, rationality, and the philosophy of logic.
