The department of philosophy conducts research across the range of philosophy while choosing our own emphasis. We are involved in long-term projects in discipline specific and interdisciplinary cooperation. Current projects will be updated here.
Our research areas are: Philosophical theory formation from 18th to 21st century with systematic recourse to Latin and Greek sources. We are interested in the history and representations of knowledge, in phenomenology as well as social and legal philosophy, in questions related to institutions and power, in the philosophy of technology, technoscience and new technologies as well as in the philosophy of music and aesthetics. Our teaching links philosophical classics with current issues in philosophy.
The department maintains national and international connections.
