Where do our beliefs come from?
I have always been curious about the social world around us. The questions of why we do the things we do followed me on different stages of my education. Having to choose one university subject seemed too constraining, as the
world around me was so much richer than one methodology could ever grasp. Thankfully, the University of Warsaw offered a different path in the form of what at that time was called Inter-Faculty Individual Studies in Humanities. While the name
might sound complicated, it was quite straightforward. In a nutshell it meant: study what you want, how you want and to the extent you want, as long as you will follow at least three different subjects. This is what I did: I focused on law,
added liberal arts to that, and combined all of it with philosophy, psychology, economics and others.
Over four years of studying law, I realised that it is not the rules that govern everyday life, but our beliefs about them. That is why I moved to Scandinavia and studied the roots of religious beliefs in an immensely plural and international environment. Since then, I am focusing on the complex relation of law and religion and the ways in which these two interact.
It is crucial to share ideas
Even the best ideas, if communicated badly, will not get required attention. And the academic writing has its specificity, which should be supported by other channels of communication. This is why I am always trying out new forms of writing
and speaking, that allow me to go beyond the "ivory tower" and reach out to everyone interested in the subject.
