Bio/Research

His main area of interest is philosophy of language and philosophical logic, and specifically the dynamic perspective on discourse and reasoning. His current research focuses on philosophical problems that are intimately tied to theoretical questions about the semantics of modality. He has written and published on epistemic modals and conditionals, and is currently working on issues in deontic logic and the semantics of moral discourse. To avoid a too steady diet of formal semantics, Malte also spends some considerable time thinking about issues in philosophy of mind and trying to better understand his teen idols (Heidegger and Wittgenstein).
