Hasko von Kriegstein

Hasko Von Kriegstein

Hasko von Kriegstein is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Law & Business in the Ted Rogers School of Management. He holds a BA in Philosophy & Economics from the University of Bayreuth in his native Germany, and received his PhD in Philosophy from the University of Toronto for his work on the value of achievement. Before joining Ryerson in 2015, he spent a year as a research fellow at the Centre for Moral and Political Philosophy at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Dr. von Kriegstein's research interests are in business ethics, ethical theory, and political philosophy. His work has appeared in peer-reviewed journals such as Business Ethics Quarterly, and Utilitas. He believes that 'business ethics' is not an oxymoron, but that the reasons why people may think it is are worth seriously thinking about. He is bothered by the seeming inability of many public commentators to distinguish between 'pro-market' and 'pro-business'.

While he likes to think of himself as a citizen of the world, this is belied by the fact that his mood can be very seriously affected by how the German team does at major soccer tournaments (not to mention his hometown club Eintracht Frankfurt).
