Gustaf Arrhenius

CEO, The Institute for Futures Studies
Professor, Practical Philosophy, Stockholm University

Membership period 2011–2016

I am Professor of Practical Philosophy at Stockholm University and affiliated researcher at the Collège d'études mondiales External link.. My research field is moral and political philosophy and I am especially interested in issues in the intersection between moral and political philosophy and the medical and social sciences (e.g. economics, law, and political science). I have written extensively on our moral obligations to future generations, applying the methods of social choice and game theory. Currently I am researching issues in population ethics, the structure of value, measurement of inequality, democratic theory, and the measurement and fair distribution of power.
