Research

I like to think about big topics and tend to work on several connected papers at the same time. I have a series of papers on Leibniz’s notion of force and its connection to substance currently under review or about to be submitted. Out of respect for the integrity of the review process I will not post the titles here.

Here are some of my recent papers:

“Ideas and Reality in Descartes” (with Arto Repo). In Martina Reuter and Frans Svensson (eds.), Mind, Body, and Morality: New Perspectives on Descartes and Spinoza. London: Routledge, 2019.

“Appetite as Activity.” In Wenchao Li, et al. (eds.) “Für Unser Glück oder das Glück Anderer”. Vorträge des X. Internationalen Leibniz-Kongresses 2016, vol. 5.  Georg Olms Verlag: Hildesheim, 2016.

“Leibniz on Primitive Concepts and Conceiving Reality” (with Arto Repo). In Hemmo Laiho and Arto Repo (eds.), De Natura Rerum. Scripta in honorem professoris Olli Koistinen sexagesimum annum complentis. Turku: University of Turku, 2016.
