Personal profile

Curriculum vitae

 

My main research interests in philosophy include the pragmatist tradition, the problem of realism in various areas of philosophy, the philosophy of religion, transcendental philosophy, ethics, metaphysics, as well as metaphilosophical issues. Currenty I am actively involved in the Academy of Finland Centre of Excellence, "Reason and Religious Recognition" (led by Prof. Risto Saarinen, hosted by the UH Faculty of Theology), in which I am one of the three team leaders, in charge of the research group focusing on contemporary philosophy of religion. My other academic responsibilities include, among others, the following: chairing the Academy of Finland Research Council of Culture and Society, chairing the Philosophical Society of Finland, and acting as the Director of the Doctoral Program of Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Helsinki.

The information about my publications and other activities entered in the TUHAT database focuses on the years following 2009, when I returned to the University of Helsinki, first as the Director of the Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies (2009-2015) and permanently as Professor of Philosophy of Religion (since 2014). However, I have attached my full cv and my full list of publications (see below) to this profile information; those documents also cover the years I spent at other universities before these UH appointments, particularly at the University of Jyväskylä, where I held my previous professorship.
