Short presentation

This paragraph is not available in English, therefore the Swedish version is shown.

Doctoral student (fully funded) in practical philosophy since 2013. My main research interests lies in normative ethics, but I'm also interested in metaphilosophy, applied ethics, metaethics and epistemology. In my thesis I explore some arguments for and against the moral theory of hedonistic act-utilitarianism, taking a particular interest in how ignorance about the long-term consequences of our acts, as well as the use of thought experiments, affect the justification of utilitarianism.
