My current research interests belong to questions of Practical Philosophy as related to economy, social practices and discourse analyses since Modernity ‘woke up' in the 13th century. One of the concepts that is of greatest interest to me is how 'freedom' is understood and structured or formed in Modernity. I think that our concepts of freedom are closely linked to the economic systems we have built and we live in. Thus, I am also concerned about economic theory building and so called ‘business ethics' in a very wide understanding.
