Presentation

Henriksen is Research Director for systematic theology, and teaches and does research in all areas of that discipline, although his main subject is Philosophy of religion. He has supervised more than 25 doctoral students for their PhD, and has presently 9 PhD-students under supervision, in addition to master students. His present research topic focuses on different dimensions in understanding the relationship between God and human experience, as well as on religion interpreted from a pragmaticist angle. He also holds a keen interest in the conditions for religion in a post-secular society.
