Research Group

Philosophy Department, Duisburg-Essen University

Since October 2016, I am an Assistant Professor at the Universität Duisburg-Essen in Germany. Here I am a member of the Philosophical Anthropology & Ethics Research Group, led by Neil Roughley, and part of the Personal Analytics Centre of Competence. Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Ottawa’s Mind, Brain Imaging and Neuroethics Research Unit, and a Lecturer in the Department of Philosophy at Carleton University, both in Canada. I completed my PhD in Philosophy at the University of Göttingen in Germany with a thesis on personal identity. During my MA studies in Philosophy and Sociology at the University of Göttingen, I spent one year at the University of California, Santa Barbara in the US. My work focuses on questions of empirically-informed Ethics; particularly on issues in Neuroethics and Medical Ethics. As well as on Philosophy of Mind and Action, and Philosophy of Neuroscience. I recently developed an interest in Buddhist Philosophy. Most of my publications can be accessed via https://uni-due.academia.edu/NilsFredericWagner.
