Personal profile

Research

My Research interest can be described as threfold: (1) The history of European philosophy in the 18.th, 19.th and 20.th Century. Here I have focused especially on questions within the broad spectrum of philosophy of culture. More specifically I have scrutinised intellectual debate culture, humanism and democracy; (2) systematic social philosophy and philosophical anthropology. WIthin this field I have worked intesively with phenomena such as trust, hope and social coherence; (3) philosophical aesthetics in which I am especially interested in the aesthetic experience.
