Bio

I am a full professor at the Department of Philosophy of the University of Bergen and part of the Toppforsk-programme. My PhD is from the University of Bern (2005). I work on questions in the philosophy of science and the philosophy of logic, in particular, on causation, mechanistic constitution, and logical formalization. My publications include an introduction to the philosophy of causation entitled “Kausalitaet und kausales Schliessen” (2004) and numerous papers on causation, causal reasoning, regularity theories, interventionism, mechanistic constitution, non-reductive physicalism, epiphenomenalism, determinism, logical formalization, argument reconstruction/evaluation, modeling in the social sciences, QCA, and the slingshot argument.
