About me

I am an associate professor and senior lecturer in philosophy, specializing in practical philosophy.
I’m a researcher, teacher, and aspiring author.

Philosopher in Umeå

I’m an associate professor of philosophy at Umeå University. I have previously held post-doc positions and fixed-term lecturer jobs at Stockholm University and the University of Gothenburg, done research at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences at Uppsala, and taught courses in philosophy at the Senior Citizen’s University in Stockholm.

My research focuses on free will, moral responsibility, rationality, respect, and the philosophy of psychiatry. I’ve also done research and published in applied ethics, primarily animal ethics.

I currently teach courses within the broader domains of moral philosophy and political philosophy and have previously taught various courses in history of philosophy.
I received my Ph.D. in philosophy in 2012 at Stockholm University with a dissertation titled Practical Perspective Compatibilism, in which I developed a Kantianism-inspired version of compatibilism. In 2020, I received the Swedish academic title of docent at Umeå University.

Nowadays, I write fiction as well as scholarly texts.

Förra veckan presenterade jag och Zsuzsanna Chappell tillsammans på the Philosophy SIG Conference för filosofer och psykiater. Jag har skrivit om detta tidigare: Vi diskuterade en problematisk normalitets-bias som dyker upp då och då i psykiatrisk och psykologisk behandling. Att vara normal för normalitetens skull är ingen värdering som explicit omfattas av psykvården. Explicit är målet med behandlingen att patienterna ska må bättre och/eller bli mer "funktionella" - kunna jobba/studera, eller åtminstone kunna sådant som sköta sin hygien, fixa mat och betala räkningar. Men en del beslut och [...]
