Overview

This programme aims to prepare qualified specialists in the field of contemporary philosophy with a focus on philosophy in the social sciences.

Philosophy is not conceived as an isolated discipline but as a discipline in dialogue with the findings of the social sciences (and some natural sciences), especially sociology, cultural and social anthropology, political science, cognitive science etc.
