Nicolai Krejberg Knudsen - New Assistant professor at the Department of Philosophy and History of Ideas
As of 1 September Nicolai is affiliated CAS as Assistant Professor. His work primarily concentrates on issues in phenomenology, social ontology, and practical philosophy
I’m Nicolai Knudsen and from September onwards I’ll be Assistant Professor in Philosophy. I have been a Junior Research Fellow in Oxford since 2020, but I already know most of you as I earned my PhD in Aarhus. I look forward to rejoining the Department – and especially to meeting those of you that I haven’t met yet.
I work primarily on issues in phenomenology, social ontology, and practical philosophy. I’ve recently finished a book called Heidegger’s Social Ontology, which should come out early next year. At the moment, I work mainly on a related but separate project on the moral responsibility of groups. More specifically, I draw on classical and contemporary phenomenology to elucidate the role of moral emotions in the attribution of responsibility to different kinds of groups.
