He received his doctorate in Jan Fridegård's writing and had a managerial role at the Nordic Museum's folk memory collection.
In an interview with Svenska Dagbladet in 2012, Schön was asked if he himself believes in ghosts.
- I have a scientifically educated hypercritical self that does not believe in anything that cannot be proven.
But I also have a more childlike and softer self that believes in a lot.
It is a kind of dialogue between the believing self and the non-believing self.
Sometimes the skeptic leads and sometimes the believer.
Ebbe Schön was 92 years old.
Shortly before his death, he had just published the book "Gårdstomtens törar".
