I studied philosophy in Warsaw and then in Uppsala. In 1979 I defended a Ph.D. thesis on universalizability in morals and the following year became an associate professor in practical philosophy at Uppsala University. I was the acting professor and chair of practical philosophy 1987-89, the chairman of the philosophy department in Uppsala 1988-93, and one of the three directors of the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study(SCAS)1994-95. In 1995 I was appointed as Professor of Practical Philosophy in Lund; since 2014 I am emeritus. In 2013 I was appointed as Centennial Professor at London School of Economics.
