    Time, Mode and Perceptual Content2012In: Acta Analytica, ISSN 0353-5150, E-ISSN 1874-6349, Vol. 27, no 4, p. 425-439Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Francois Recanati has recently argued that each perceptual state has two distinct kinds of content, complete and explicit content. According to Recanati, the former is a function of the latter and the psychological mode of perception. Furthermore, he has argued that explicit content is temporally neutral and that time-consciousness is a feature of psychological mode. In this paper it is argued, pace Recanati, that explicit content is not temporally neutral. Recanati's position is initially presented. Three desiderata for a theory of time-consciousness are subsequently introduced. It is then argued that a theory locating time-consciousness as a feature of psychological mode will fail to satisfy these desiderata. In the last section the intentionality of memories is discussed. Using the notion of shiftable indexical, it is argued that memories have the same explicit content as perceptions, but that they nevertheless can have different conditions of satisfaction since they are entertained in different modes.

    Lyckans och lidandets etik2009Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Vad är lycka och lidande och hur kan vi påverka vår egen och andras lycka? Hur hänger lycka ihop med livskvalitet – är det samma sak eller finns det även andra saker som gör ett liv bra? Hur stark är vår moraliska plikt att att göra världen lyckligare och hur kan man i detalj formulera en etisk ”lyckoprincip” så att den blir så rimlig som möjligt?

    Första delen av den här boken handlar om grundläggande frågor som en lyckans och lidandets etik måste besvara. Men den stannar inte där utan går vidare till hur vi praktiskt kan gå tillväga för att öka lyckan och minska lidandet i världen. Vilka förhållningssätt bör vi försöka tillägna oss? Vilka karaktärsdrag bör vi utveckla? Hur bör vi bemöta andra människor? Hur bör samhället organiseras? Hur bör de globala spelreglerna utformas? För att svara på sådana frågor behöver vi kunskap om vilka faktorer som påverkar lycka och lidande hos människor och andra levande varelser och boken innehåller därför även en översikt över de senaste decenniernas empiriska lyckoforskning.Boken ger inga detaljerade recept på hur man gör sig själv eller andra lyckligare, men den ger en karta över ett spännande territorium och ett användbart sätt att tänka för världsförbättrare och andra lyckofrämjare.

    Minimum Levels of Services of General Interest: what Fundamental Rights do Individuals and Services have?2013In: Europe XXI, ISSN 1429-7132, Vol. 23, p. 47-68Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The European Union is currently experiencing a period of significant upheaval. The financial crisis, structural changes in the economy and population decline in many regions combine to make a difficult situation even worse in respect of SGI. To mitigate these problems EU policy on economic, social and territorial cohesion aims to remove regional differences and to otherwise affect policies to ensure the right to the same service status regardless of localisation. This paper aims to discuss what a minimum level of SGI means to individuals and enterprises. The key EU policy documents offer no guidance in terms of defining what a minimum level of SGI is, for either individuals or enterprises. It is up to the Member States to define the thresholds; national policies, traditions and moral values thereby creating a vague and heterogeneous notion of what constitutes a minimum level of SGI provision.

    Recognizing the Ache of the Other: Jonathan Franzen's Reasons for Bothering2014In: Ethics and Poetics: Ethical Recognitions and Social Reconfigurations in Modern Narratives / [ed] Champion, Margrét Gunnarsdóttir & Goloubeva, Irina Rasmussen (eds.), Newcastle upon Tyne: Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2014, p. 107-134Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Having undermined any notion of innocent language, postmodern fiction has been criticized for its loss of connection to the social sphere, rendering null and void its potential for bringing about political reconfigurations. All that postmodernist authors can manage is self-reflexive irony—a parody of representation. Yet, as a result of essays like “Why Bother?” (1969), Jonathan Franzen has been placed in a new category of writers who are worried that the inertia of postmodernism has robbed them of serious readers. “Where to find the energy to engage with a culture in crisis when the crisis consists in the impossibility of engaging with the culture?” he asks.

      Franzen’s most recent novel Freedom is his attempt to answer this question. Focusing on his characters’ deep anxiety and sense of remorse at having made mistakes in their lives, he portrays their relentless agonizing over bad decisions as illustrations of the flip-side of their liberty, or rather, what it is grounded in: ethics. Freedom is a heavy burden, especially for the novel’s female protagonist, who, as a teen, has rejected her politically active, New York-liberal family to study and play basketball in the more conservative Midwest. The hyper-competitive Patty Berglund’s efforts—first to be a team-player, then to be as “good” as her self-righteous, environmentalist husband Walter, and finally to trump his moral superiority by over-mothering their son Joey—all backfire on her, leaving her to self-medicate a mid-life depression with alcohol.

     As Emmanuel Levinas posits, prior to our sense of freedom is the recognition of “the other in me,” which comes with an infinite responsibility. For Levinas, justice is what recognizes rather than institutes this responsibility. In his essay “Difficult Freedom,” he asserts that ethics is the primordial religious emotion, and that justice should be the raison d’être of the state, not the other way round. This essay will demonstrate that it is not any codified moral law that brings about justice. Rather, it is the recognition that freedom is always already preceded by a primordial responsibility to the face of the Other, which is in turn checked by the presence of a third party. It is this ethical challenge that drives the plot of Franzen’s novel about people who, in the words of the Berglund family’s neighbors, have to “figure out how to live.”
