Ole Bjerg

While originally trained as a sociologist, I have always gravitated towards philosophy in my thinking, reading and writing. I like to work with fundamental, simple, and almost childish questions and then allow them to grow into more complex thinking.

My first piece of proper academic work was my bachelor's thesis, which was on the nature of laughter. It was my take on the simple question: Why do we laugh? Even though different people have their own sense of humor and thus tend to find different things funny, I demonstrated in the thesis, how all phenomenon invoking laughter are characterized by three basic principles. To this day, I am ready to defend the analysis of my younger self. It still holds!

My first book was based on my PhD in sociology from the University of Copenhagen and

Throughout my academic career, I have had the great fortune of being able to pursue whatever topic I happened to found interesting. As I did my PhD in sociology at the University of Copenhagen, I not only got my intellectual muscles trimmed by diving deep into the works of great thinkers such as Martin Heidegger, Niklas Luhmann, Arthur Schopenhauer, Aristotle, Emile Durkheim, and Max Weber. I also managed to apply these theories to the study of contemporary pathologies such as anorexia, drug addiction, and excessive body building. This work resulted in my first book, Etik uden moral [Ethics without morality], which tried to answer a contemporary version of the old theodicy problem: If humans are ethical beings, why is there evil in the world? I would still defend most of the arguments of this book, although probably not as uncompromising as I would defend my piece on laughter.
