Rasmus Johnsen | Associate Professor CBS

Born in September 1974. Studied Philosophy and Danish Literature at Roskilde University in Denmark and at Eberhard Karls University  in Tübingen, Germany. Now he is Associate Professor at Copenhagen Business School, Department of Philosophy, Politics and Management.

His main research interests may be separated into two areas. Firstly, he works with the pathologies of modern day work-life (stress, depression, anxiety, boredom etc.) and how they resonate with our cultural history. In his PhD, which he wrote at CBS, he developped three ‘formations’ in the history of melancholy which are reflected in the way we speak about and act towards stress, burn-out and depression today. More recently, he has been working with the concept of boredom and the status of the phenomenon in a culture that focuses intensely on self-regulation and personal initiative. Secondly, he works with the humanities and their role and use in business education.
