About Andras Szigeti

András Szigeti is Senior Lecturer in Practical Philosophy at Linköping University (Sweden). He specializes in action theory, emotion theory and the ethics and metaphysics of individual and collective responsibility.

He has also written about collective epistemic agency, group-level causation, the emotional aspects of forgiveness and the relevance of emotion-based arguments to the possibility of moral dilemmas.
