Doctoral thesis: What We Talk About when We Talk About Love, 2008


I defended my doctoral thesis What We Talk About when We Talk About Love in philosophy at Åbo Akademi University in 2008, opponent Alice Crary. In it I discussed how different ways of talking about love can throw light on philosophical discussions regaring emotions, identity, morality and meaning. After the defense I have worked partly as a researcher and partly as a teacher in philosophy, and to some extent in University pedagogy, at Åbo  Akademi University. 


During the academic year 2018-2019 I am a teacher in the course Philosophy of Science common to the whole faculty, as well as the philosophy courses Moral Philiosophy and Modern Currents in Philosophy: Kontinental Philosophy, as well as the course "Social exclusion in a philosophical perspective" in the new Master's program  Social Exclusion. I am also the instructor of the Seminar 1-4 in philosophy, where we thing spring will discuss Stanley Cavell's book Cities of Words. 

I serve as supervisor for Sara Nyman's Master's thesis and the PhD theses of Salla Peltonen, Evelina Salo och Nicholas Lawrence.
