Research interests

Nils works in aesthetics, ethics and their intersection. He's interested in understanding how ethical values in artworks affect their aesthetic values, what makes an artwork a legitimate target of ethical criticism, and various other normative questions around art appreciation understood broadly. Some of this work relates to other areas, such as feminist philosophy, the philosophy of race, and metaphysics.
