Personlig profil


I am a theoretical philosopher interested in questions like "Can it be rational to have faith?", "Can atheists be religious?", "How can one rationally respond to something being a live possibility?", "How can religion develop in the future?", "What does it mean to fear?" etc.

Most of my work falls within the epistemology of religion, and I am primarily interested in ways of being religious which do not require outright belief. There are two major strands of such "belief-less" religion. On non-doxasticism, a religious commitment is based on religious attitudes which do not require belief, like hope, acceptance and certain kinds of faith. On fictionalism, religious propositions are treated as fiction and religious life as a game of make-believe.

My current project concerns the limits and possibilities of non-doxasticism and fictionalism, and the possibility of constructing a hybrid-position.
