Research in practical philosophy

Practical philosophy includes all philosophical issues related to human agency, institutions, practices and values – morality and politics are often in focus of practical philosophical inquiry.

Current research primarily regards moral and political philosophy, and philosophy of action and law. Many researchers work on applications, such as bioethics, business and financial ethics, environmental ethics, ethics of technology, and the ethics of psychiatry. But much research also concerns basic topics within normative and metaethics, as well as basic concepts, such as happiness, human agency, practical rationality, and free will and moral responsibility.

Many resarchers in the practical philosophy group collaborate with other research areas, such as economics, history of ideas, law, medicine and health sciences, poltical science, psychology, a.o.

There are also many commissions and consultation activities of practical philosophers with national and regional agencies.
