    How Will the Emerging Plurality of Lives Change How We Conceive of and Relate to Life?Erik Persson, Jessica Abbott, Christian Balkenius, Anna Cabak Redei, Klara Anna Čápová, Dainis Dravins, David Dunér, Markus Gunneflo, Maria Hedlund, Mats Johansson, Anders Melin & Petter Persson - 2019 - Challenges 10 (1).
    The project “A Plurality of Lives” was funded and hosted by the Pufendorf Institute for Advanced Studies at Lund University, Sweden. The aim of the project was to better understand how a second origin of life, either in the form of a discovery of extraterrestrial life, life developed in a laboratory, or machines equipped with abilities previously only ascribed to living beings, will change how we understand and relate to life. Because of the inherently interdisciplinary nature of the project aim, (...)

    Swedenborg and the Plurality of Worlds: Astrotheology in the Eighteenth Century.David Dunér - 2016 - Zygon 51 (2):450-479.
    The possible existence of extraterrestrial life led in the eighteenth century to a heated debate on the unique status of the human being and of Christianity. One of those who discussed the new scientific worldview and its implications for theology was the Swedish natural philosopher and theologian Emanuel Swedenborg. This article discusses Swedenborg's astrotheological transformation, his use of theological arguments in his early cosmology, and his cosmogony that later on ended up in his use of contemporary natural philosophy in his (...)

    The History and Philosophy of Astrobiology.David Dunér, Joel Pathermore, Erik Persson & Gustav Holmberg (eds.) - 2013 - Cambridge Scholars Press.
    Human beings have wondered about the stars since the dawn of the species. Does life exist out there – intelligent life, even – or are we alone?

This book traces the history of the science of this area and the development of new schools in philosophy. Its essays (...)

    The Cultural Semiotics of African Encounters: Eighteenth-Century Images of the Other.David Dunér - 2020 - Semiotica 2020 (232):103-146.
    This a contribution to the cultural semiotics of African cultural encounters seen through the eyes of Swedish naturalists at the end of the eighteenth century. European travellers faced severe problems in understanding the alien African cultures they encountered; they even had difficulty understanding the other culture as a culture. They were not just other cultures that they could relate to, but often something completely different, belonging to the natural history of the human species. The Khoikhoi and other groups were believed (...)
