Jonna Bornemark is associate professor in philosophy and works at The Center for Studies in Practical Knowledge. She is the editor of anthologies such as Phenomenology of Religion: New Frontiers, Monument and Memory, and Phenomenology of Eros. In 2010 she defended her thesis Kunskapens gräns - gränsens vetande: en fenomenologisk undersökning av transcendens och kroppslighet (Limits of Knowledge - Knowledge of the Limit: A Phenomenological Investigation of Transcendence and Embodiment).

Jonna is currently active in several research-projects within the theory of practical knowledge, phenomenology, and philosophy of religion. Within these projects she discusses the limits of calculation, skills of judgement, subjectivity and the concept of Bildung. But also the relation between humans and animals, pregnancy and embodiment. Some central characters are Mechthild von Magdeburg, Nicolas of Cusa, Giordano Bruno, Edmund Husserl, Max Scheler and Edith Stein.
