Try dig -x XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX (where the xxx's represent the IP address)
to get a name for the IP - and then search the domain part of it in whois.

Alternatively you can search the IP address in whois to find out who owns the netblock - although that might be a little bit more vague

I have received e-mails from someone I do not know, but he seems to know who I am.
Offcourse I could just block him, so I will not receive any more of his e-mails, but I am actually really curios.
I have already found his IP adres and the host, but how can I find more detailed information about this person?

You said that with whois you can find out who owns the block.
So if I know who the host is, I can find out where this person lives?
Could I also get more detailed info? Like his name/adress/phone number?

Kind regards,
Naila
