Personal profile


I am currently part of the interdisciplinary project The Somerville-group and the introduction of historical arguments in philosophy funded by The Bank of Sweden Centenary Foundation, which aims to highlight and analyse the pioneering efforts made by a group of female philosophers including G. E. M. Anscombe, Iris Murdoch, Mary Midgley and Philippa Foot, in particular with regards to historical modes of argument and connections to earlier continental thought.

I am also currently working on exemplifying how engagement with fiction can be seen as furthering moral understanding from a moral perfectionist perspective through a series of close readings of John Williams’s novels, how a rapidly changing Artworld context necessitates novel understandings of role-specific duties and commitments on both an individual and collective level, and how aesthetic value interacts with other kinds of value, for instance in cases of morally, epistemically, or cognitively complex and problematic aesthetic objects such as e.g., artworks, architectonic compositions, and narratives.
