My name is Kristoffer Ahlstrom-Vij, and I’m a Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Kent, Canterbury. My primary research interest is in the epistemic good: what it is, and what empirical psychology can tell us about how we can attain it.

Recently, I have been working on

At present, I am involved in two projects investigating

  • the problems and prospects for epistemic consequentialism. The project is conducted together with Jeff Dunn (DePauw) and funded by the British Academy. As part of the project, Jeff and I will be organising a workshop at LSE in 2014 and an international conference at the University of Kent in 2015.
  • the virtues and vices of cognitive outsourcing, i.e., of handing over (outsourcing) one’s information collection and processing (the cognitive) to others. The project is conducted as part of Lund University‘s project Knowledge in a Digital World, funded by the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet).

When I don’t do research, I give talks or teach. And whenever I find a good excuse to do none of the above, I travel.
