    A Personal Love of the Good.Camilla Kronqvist - 2019 - Philosophia 47 (4):977-994.
    In order to articulate an account of erotic love that does not attempt to transcend its personal features, Robert Solomon and Martha Nussbaum lean on the speeches by Aristophanes and Alcibiades in Plato’s Symposium. This leads them to downplay the sense in which love is not only for another person, but also for the good. Drawing on a distinction between relative and absolute senses of speaking about the good, I mediate between two features of love that at first may seem (...)

    The Difficulty of Understanding: Complexity and Simplicity in Moral Psychological Description.Camilla Kronqvist & Natan Elgabsi - 2021 - Scientia Moralitas 6 (2):78-103.
    The social intuitionist approach to moral judgments advanced by social psychologist Jonathan Haidt presupposes that it is possible to provide an explanation of the human moral sense without normative implications. By contrast, Iris Murdoch’s philosophical work on moral psychology suggests that every description of morality necessarily involves evaluative features that reveal the thinker’s own moral attitudes and implicit philosophical pictures. In the light of this, we contend that Haidt’s treatment of the story about Julie and Mark, two siblings who decide (...)

    The Promise That Love Will Last.Camilla Kronqvist - 2011 - Inquiry: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy 54 (6):650 - 668.
    Abstract What sense are we to make of the promise of love against the contingency of human life? I discuss two replies to this question: (1) the suggestion that marriage, based on the probable success of this kind of relationship, is a more or less worthwhile endeavour (cf. Moller and Landau), and (2) Martha Nussbaum's Aristotelian proposal that we only live life fully if we embrace aspects of life, such as loving relationships, that are vulnerable to fortune. I show that (...)

    Laying One’s Cards on the Table: Experiencing Exile and Finding Our Feet in Moral Philosophical Encounters.Camilla Kronqvist & Natan Elgabsi - 2021 - Open Philosophy 4 (1):404-424.
    Engaging with the philosophical writings of Iris Murdoch, we submit that there are difficulties associated with providing a good description of morality that are intimately connected with difficulties in understanding other human beings. We suggest three senses in which moral philosophical reflection needs to account for our understanding of others: the failure to understand someone is not merely an intellectual failure, but also engages us morally; the moral question of understanding is not limited to the extent to which we understand (...)

    A Passion for Life: Love and Meaning.Camilla Kronqvist - 2017 - Nordic Wittgenstein Review 6 (1):31-51.
    Does one’s love for a particular person, when it is pure, also constitute a love of life? The significance of speaking about leading a passionate life, I submit, is found in the spontaneous, embodied character of opening up to and finding meaning in one’s life rather than in heightened fleeting feelings or experiences of meaning that help one forget life’s meaninglessness. I contrast this view with Simone Weil’s suspicion that our passionate attachment to another person is an obstacle to attending (...)

  6. What We Talk About When We Talk About Love.Camilla Kronqvist - 2008 - Dissertation,
    Are there reasons for loving? How can I promise to love someone? Is there such a thing as unconditional love? Am I responsible for loving or for failing to love someone? Can there be love without idealization? -/- This work sets out to show that many of the questions we raise when philosophizing about love are expressive of confusions about what we talk about when we talk about love. Addressing questions pertaining to philosophical discussions about emotions, personal identity and the (...)

    Lost and Found: Selfhood and Subjectivity in Love.Camilla Kronqvist - 2012 - Philosophical Investigations 35 (3-4):205-223.
    Sartre's conception of bad faith suggests that every desire to be someone in love is self-deceptive in the attempt to define my factual being. Departing from İlham Dilman's discussion of personal identity, I argue that this view on selfhood is inattentive to the kind of personal and moral reflection inherent in asking who I am. There is a temptation in love to deceive myself and you by renouncing responsibility. Yet the concept also embodies demands that allow me to continuously shape (...)

  11. Hur för man samtal?Camilla Kronqvist, Birgit Schaffar & Marina Lundkvist - 2020 - Studier i Pædagogisk Filosofi 9 (1).
    Interaktioner och samtal med barn, vårdnadshavare och andra pedagoger intar en central roll i småbarnspedagogers arbete. I den här artikeln undersöker vi blivande småbarnspedagogers förhållningssätt till samtal och sitt eget deltagande i praktiska samtalsövningar hämtade från Filosofi för barn. Vi diskuterar dessa förhållningssätt i ljuset av triaden tilltal-gensvar-ansvar som inom dialogisk etik betraktas som centrala element för äkta samtal. Studerande uttrycker inledningsvis en viss obekvämhet med att behöva samtala på ett för dem nytt sätt, men uppfattar sedan att samtalsformen hjälper (...)

    The Difficulty of Thinking Listening to the Voices of Students in Early Childhood Education.Camilla Kronqvist, Birgit Schaffar & Marina Lundkvist - 2020 - Journal of Philosophy in Schools 7 (1):68.
    This paper addresses the question of how to conceptualise the kind of difficulties students in early childhood education encountered in articulating their thoughts and in listening to others in the initial stages of a CoI. With examples from their course diaries, we illustrate what sense it makes to consider the thinking the CoI promotes as centrally embodied, extended, embedded and enacted. We consider their difficulties, not as external obstacles to expressing their thought, but as difficulties that are internal to thinking (...)

    What Makes Life a Lie? Love, Truth and the Question of Context.Camilla Kronqvist - 2020 - SATS 21 (2):101-116.
    Wittgenstein suggested that considering the context in which a word or sentence is used may help show the limitations of some ways of setting up a philosophical problem. In this article, I explore the role this suggestion may have in moral reflection, through a consideration of a literary example taken from Jeanette Winterson’s novel, Written on the Body. Using the example to elucidate ways of speaking in love that seem to embody an important truth and ways of acting and thinking (...)

    How may science, philosophy and poetry aid us in our search for an understanding of the concept of love? By drawing on different attempts to articulate Wittgenstein’s notion that philosophizing about a concept is a matter of bringing it back to its natural home, the lives we live in language, this chapter presses what this may mean when the language we want to find the home for is the language of love. Is it a pre-requisite of such an investigation that (...)
