Johan E. Gustafsson

I am a Senior Lecturer at the University of Gothenburg and a Lecturer at the University of York. My research focuses on theoretical problems in ethics, value theory, and political philosophy. I also work on decision theory and more specifically on preferences, money pumps, and moral uncertainty. In metaphysics, I work on free will and personal identity. And, sometimes, I work on the history of these topics. I am currently writing a book about value and money pumps in ethics and decision theory.

At the Institute for Futures Studies, I participate in the research project: Climate ethics and future generations.
