    PHILOSOPHY AND OTHER DISCIPLINES2008In: Metaphilosophy, ISSN 0026-1068, E-ISSN 1467-9973, Vol. 39, no 4-5, p. 472-483Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article offers a perspective on the role of philosophy in relation to other academic disciplines and to society in general. Among the issues treated are the delimitation of philosophy, whether it is a science, its role in the community of knowledge disciplines, its losses of subject matter to other disciplines, how it is influenced by social changes and by progress in other disciplines, and its role in interdisciplinary work. It is concluded that philosophy has an important mission in promoting clarity, precision, and open-mindedness in academic research and in society at large.

    Evaluating ethical tools2015In: Metaphilosophy, ISSN 0026-1068, E-ISSN 1467-9973, Vol. 46, no 2, p. 263-279Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article reviews suggestions for how ethical tools are to be evaluated and argues that the concept of ethical soundness as presented by Kaiser etal. (2007) is unhelpful. Instead, it suggests that the quality of an ethical tool is determined by how well it achieves its assigned purpose(s). Those are different for different tools, and the article suggests a categorization of such tools into three groups. For all ethical tools, it identifies comprehensiveness and user-friendliness as crucial. For tools that have reaching a decision in a democratic context as a main purpose, it identifies transparency, guiding users toward a decision and justification of the decision-supporting mechanism. For tools that aim to engage the public, it identifies procedural fairness as essential. It also notes that the scope of use for ethical tools is limited to the same moral community, and that this feature is frequently overlooked.

    Has psychology debunked conceptual analysis?2006In: Metaphilosophy, ISSN 0026-1068, E-ISSN 1467-9973, Vol. 37, no 1, p. 26-33Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The philosophical method of conceptual analysis has been criticised on the grounds that empirical psychological research has cast severe doubt on whether concepts exist in the form traditionally assumed, and that conceptual analysis therefore is doomed. This objection may be termed the Charge from Psychology. After a brief characterisation of conceptual analysis, I discuss the Charge from Psychology and argue that it is misdirected.
