Research

My dissertation project focuses on the question of moral agency in other entities than human beings. What non-human beings can be morally responsible for their actions? Can other animals be moral agents? What about artificial entities like robots or intelligent programs? If any non-human entities are in fact moral agents, is their moral agency the same as ours? Or do they earn it by meeting a modified or wholly different set of criteria? What ethical, legal and social consequences follows?

In addition to the above, I take interest in animal ethics, philosophy of mind and related normative questions, philosophical questions regarding comparative cognition (like choice of method and interpretation of data), theories about human uniqueness, as well as questions regarding quality of life.
