My PhD dissertation online

In august 2005 I publicly defended my doctoral dissertation “Moral Voices and Ethical Dialogue. A Study of Literary Character and Moral Authority” at the Norwegian Lutheran School of Theology.

In it, I study a novel by the British author Iris Murdoch (1919-1999) called A Fairly Honourable Defeat. I studied three of the characters using a method I called “Relational Readings”, and in dialogue with Iris Murdoch’s philosophical texts as well as texts by Paul Ricoeur and Mikhail Bakhtin.
