Victoria Höög, associate professor. My dissertation: Upplysning utan förnuft, Begär och frihet hos Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, Montesquieu and David Hume, (Enlightenment without Reason. Desire and Freedom in Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, Montesquieu and David Hume.), is a critical historiographical examination on the standard Enlightenment view of man. Currently my research interests are the epistemology and ontology in the postwar history of philosophy of sciences. During 2013 she will finish a monograph: Knowledge System in Crisis: Philosophy of Science and the Humanities Drift Apart. The project is closely connected to her other research project "Technoscience and the Enlightenment Vision.New Regimes of Knowledge Production. Epistemological and Ethical Conditions." The focus is the conditions of knowledge production in the 21th century Europe. The claim is that the concept technoscience makes aspects of the current knowledge production visible that the other labels exclude.
