    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Den övergripande problemformuleringen i min doktorsavhandling, Kripke on Necessity: A Metaphysical Investigation, kan formuleras på följande sätt: På vilka metafysiska grunder rättfärdigar Kripke giltigheten och existensen av nödvändiga a posteriori och kontingenta a priori satser? Jag visar att Kripke-paradigmet för den metafysiska essentialismen vilar på ett fundamentalt antagande, nämligen Oberoendeaxiomet, som kan formuleras på följande vis: De metafysiska och epistemiska domänerna är distinkta och ömsesidigt oberoende. Min undersökning avser att synliggöra de logiska och ontologiska konsekvenser som följer av detta axiom med avseende på en rad Kripkeanska teser, så som: identitetsprincipen, rigid designation, nödvändiga och kontingenta egenskaper, föremålsbegreppet samt tänkbarhetsprincipen (conceivability).

    Abstract : In the wake of a steady flow of child migrants attempting to cross borders and states’ efforts to restrict immigration, various public controversies have arisen about the rights of asylum-seeking children. The ‘moral gap’ between the outcome of democratically enacted laws and the aim of controlling immigration, on the one hand, and public calls to protect the universal rights of asylum seeking children, on the other, have created a political challenge for Western democracies.
