My thesis, entitled Perfection and Fiction comprises a study of the ethical thought of Iris Murdoch with special emphasis, as evidenced by the title, on how morality is intimately connected to self-improvement aiming at perfection and how the study of (literary) fiction has an important role to play in our strive towards bettering ourselves within the framework set by Murdoch’s moral philosophy.
Other areas of competence include the history of (moral) philosophy (including history theory), ethical theory, eudemonism, self-realisationism, moral psychology, aesthetics, literature and philosophy, and the philosophy of emotions.
