Research project(s)

Better Understanding the Metaphysics of Pregnancy (BUMP): Organisms, Identity, Personhood and Persistence

Pregnancy presents us with fascinating philosophical problems: what, during the pregnancy, is the nature of the relationship between the foetus and the maternal organism? What is the relationship between the pregnant organism and the later baby? And when does one person or organism become two? A 1.2 million Euro research grant from the ERC allows Elselijn Kingma and her research team to address these and other questions in a 5 year research project starting in spring 2016.
