The Department of Philosophy at Stockholm University is the largest in Sweden, boasting a lively community of philosophers with a broad range of scholarly interests. The department has a strong international profile: we frequently attract visitors from around the world, regularly invite internationally renowned philosophers to our colloquium, and are involved in several international research networks. In both 2008 and 2014, we were selected as one of the leading research areas in the humanities at Stockholm University. The department’s traditional strengths within practical philosophy, including meta-ethics, normative ethics, applied ethics and the theory of value, have recently been augmented by the addition of the Stockholm Centre for the Ethics of War and Peace. Several of our faculty members are associated with the Institute for Futures Studies, which hosts research projects of philosophical relevance.
