Distinctive interdisciplinary approach with philosophers, sociologists, and anthropologists working together in teaching and research

Philosophy asks the questions most essential to human life. Studying Philosophy will teach you to think rigorously, to defend your views in a clear and consistent way, to understand the why and what-for of different points of view, and ultimately to develop a sharp, analytical and open mind.

Based in the Department of Sociology, Philosophy and Anthropology, our unique environment encourages a productive fusion of the three subjects. This creates cross-over research domains like the field of music, aesthetics and cognition, which researchers with diverse disciplinary training pursue together.
