Profile picture of dr. D.D. (Daphne) Brandenburg



Daphne Brandenburg is an Assistant Professor in Applied Ethics, at the University of Groningen.

Her work critically analyses how research in psychology and the cognitive sciences has bearing on ethical questions about autonomy, consent, and responsibility. Do implicit biases undermine our autonomy? When does a child become responsible and why? How might a mental health condition mitigate culpability? When and why is praise patronizing? And, what do the answers to these questions imply for society, criminal justice, and therapy? These are some of the key questions she has addressed in her work.

She also has an interest in the philosophy of emotions and in the ethics of humor.
