You may already be familiar with the GRIM test, invented by Nick Brown and James Heathers (if not, you can see their original paper here). It’s a very simple technique, which can be used to check the possibility of means reported in papers using discrete and integer measures (like likert scales). Brown and Heathers used this tool to check the possibility of means reported in the psychological literature. Out of the 71 papers that used likert scales and could be tested using GRIM, about half (36) reported at least one mean that was incompatible with the reported sample size.



During the years 2015-2016 and 2016-2017, I gave lectures on the following topics at Paris 8 University:

  • Introduction to Political Theory (for first-year undergrads)
  • Theories of Justice (for first-year MA students)

In 2011-2012, I co-organized a seminar on contemporary French philosophy at Leipzig University.
