He received his Ph.D. in philosophy from University of Toronto and his FD in practical philosophy from Uppsala University. Arrhenius research interests are primarily in moral and political philosophy, and he is especially interested in issues in the intersection between moral and political philosophy and the medical and social sciences (e.g., economics, law, and political science). He has written extensively on our moral obligations to future generations, applying the methods of social choice and game theory.

Currently he’s researching issues in population ethics, the structure of value, measurement of inequality, democratic theory, and the measurement and fair distribution of power. See here for a popular presentation of his recent research in English and here for a French version.
