Welcome to the Philosophy Forum is a meeting place for philosophers in Sweden. Members’ backgrounds are varied – some study full-time philosophy while others are looking for personal interest. For whatever reasons you may have come here we hope you will enjoy it. Here you can discuss topics like philosophical literature, politics, spirituality or your own thoughts – with like-minded and unlike-minded people.

Why not look at the following popular topics:

How do you define utilitarianism?
Black holes
is normality a deviation?
Free will, determinism, quantum mechanics …
Is God there?

If you probably do not hate anything that interests you here, you can always start a new thread yourself. It takes less than two minutes to register, but do not forget to read the forum’s rules of conduct first. Nice reading!

Following a conversation with the intendent of the Swedish Prison Museum, the idea of ​​having a theme discussion with a philosophical starting point regarding crime and detention came about. It would be interesting to talk about the view of prison / crime based on historical perspectives, in the present time and where we are heading. Michel Foucault is central. Our view of the criminals reflects our current view of life. Morality, existentialism, utilitarianism and the free will, the touchpoints become a lot to this subject and we are forced to take a practical position. Penalty or care? The views are different, but why? Philosophy can explain the concepts here and show why we think differently. Here is the underground “crime”.

Examples of topics for inspiration:

Does he deserve to die?
Crime and punishment.
Neoliberalism – punishment.
Street Violence.
Penalty = Therapy for the public

The forum will naturally not be filled with information, but now there is the structure and possibilities. Our primary goal is now that those who find philosophy are interesting and vital to find here. If you are able to link from other websites, we would be grateful. A link back on our link page is no problem if your page relates to philosophy. Certain marketing will be released, and over time, we hope the rings will spread. Here are some material you can use to help spread

Several universities and institutions have already added in their link tips. We are a bit on our way, but realize that many people who are interested in philosophy would not be thinking about using the internet as tools. It is up to you and me to inform them about the possibilities of the internet as a generating resource for philosophy.
