David Heering

​I am a philosopher and, occasionally, an author based in Berlin.

For all complaints and queries, email me at


Currently I am an Akademischer Mitarbeiter at the University of Potsdam and a Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter at the FAU Erlangen, and I used to be a fellow at the Centre for Human Abilities. In August 2024, I will start my own research position at Freie Universität Berlin. Here is my full CV.

I received my PhD from the University of Leeds under the supervision of Helen Steward and Pekka Väyrynen.


My research focuses on how rational and free agency interfaces with metanormativity. I am interested in freedom of the will, moral psychology, acting for reasons, and moral responsibility. I also have opinions on the philosophy of conspiracy theories.

I'm also from Bavaria, but that's not my fault.
