About Magnus Krook

Project Description

My thesis project explores Latin as a means of communication in the fields of philosophy and the natural sciences at Swedish higher education institutions 1800–1840. I will in particular focus on how German Romanticism influenced Swedish philosophers and scientists and how the Latin scientific terminology changed during this period.


I’m a PhD student in Latin since the autumn of 2017. I obtained my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees at Lund University (in Latin and Greek and theoretical and practical philosophy, respectively).
