Einar Duenger Bøhn


My postdoctoral project concerned the metaphysics of morality, and in particular moral supervenience. I argue for the view that we can have moral objectivity without sui generis moral ontology. Moral thought and talk is just another way of conceptualizing the same reality underlying non-moral thought and talk. I also explore to what extent the moral conceptualizations are individuated by particular emotions.

Selected publications (see personal website):

"An argument against the necessity of unrestricted composition", Analysis Vol.69, No.1, January 2009, pp.25-29.
"Must There Be a Top Level?", Philosophical Quarterly Vol.59, No.235, April 2009, pp.193-201.

I have also given several academic as well as non-academic talks, and made some contributions to public debate in various places.
