Tomas Vanheste (Nederland, 1968) is a Belgian/Dutch/European philosopher, historian and mathematician, who writes for De Correspondent, an online Dutch journalism platform that focusses on background, analysis, investigative reporting and stories that tend to be forgotten by mainstream media. Vanheste is correspondent ‘Europe, between Power and Imagination’ and tries to uncover how decisions in Brussels are the result of power struggles between the European member states, European institutions and the lobbying of the business industry and NGO’s. Apart from European politics, literature and theater form the context from which Vanheste attempts to draw ideas of what Europe is and what it can be.
