Brief Description of Work: As a philosopher I have worked on a wide range of topics within action theory, theory of health and wellbeing, and recently the theory of disability and dignity in health care. Much of my work has been in partnership with colleagues in other disciplines. For 25 years I directed the research program Theory and Ethics of Health Care within the Department of Health and Society at Linköping University. The Institute specialized in cross-disciplinary research between philosophy and the social sciences. Among many other projects we carried out an extensive study of models of disorder developing and extending Anthony Colombo’s work at Warwick University.
