I wrote my PhD-thesis (2001) within the field of historical moral theories and I investigated the animal ethical ideas among three prominent German intellectuals of the 19th Century: Schopenhauer, Grysanowski and Schweitzer.

Aside from my interest in ethics I also work with history of medicine and history of concepts.

I am currently working with the concept of anthropomorphism as an outdated positivist outlook. I am also working on a lager project that concerns the meaning of Man in 18th century debate on Human Rights and Linnaeus concept of Homo sapiens.
