dr. C.E. (Caroline) Harnacke

Assistant Professor 

Tilburg School of Humanities and Digital Sciences
Department of Philosophy


Dr. Caroline Harnacke is Assistant Professor of Applied Ethics. Her main interests concern the relation between normative and applied ethics, bioethics, and, specifically, disability ethics. She also enjoys peeking into meta-ethics, political philosophy, and philosophy of biology.

In November 2015, she obtained her PhD in ethics from Utrecht University. In her PhD-thesis, she shows how theories of human nature should be integrated into bioethics and what bioethics can gain from such an integration. The thesis was supervised by Prof. Marcus Düwell, Prof. Ingrid Robeyns, and Dr. Joel Anderson.

She studied in Bayreuth (Germany), Stellenbosch (South Africa), Utrecht (The Netherlands), and Linköping (Sweden). Before coming to Tilburg, she worked at the Ethics Institute of Utrecht University.
