Jonas currently holds a three-year research grant from the German Research Council (DFG) for a project on the relational nature of morality. He received his PhD from University College London in 2019. Much of his research is inspired by the role of the second-person in ethics and the idea that we stand in a relationship of mutual accountability to each other. Jonas is currently interested in investigating to what extent we can take as normatively basic not the shared relationship between all members of the moral community but the bipolar ‘I-you’- relationship that holds between two persons who possess the individual authority to demand certain treatment of one another as sources of valid claims.
