Philosophy and Ethics
From a methodological point of view, the Institute for Philosophy and Ethics focuses on Anglo-Saxon, analytical philosophy. Yet at the same time, there is a certain openness to other methods, such as the continental way of argumentation, free of formalisms. Both philosophy and ethics are considered inseparable from each other. In fact, the question of how we expediently take responsibility largely depends on how we perceive things. For this reason, the ethical perspective receives full attention in the events.
The emphasis in terms of content is not to have a focal point. Civilizations are in worldwide conflict with each other. Most of them have grown historically and are based on world views that are considered outdated. No consideration is given to this in the institute. Hence, a wide range of philosophical approaches, including hermeneutics, idealism, and Eastern and Western philosophies of the past, are explored. Additionally, the program delves into subjects that are frequently absent from conventional academic discourse, such as scholasticism and existentialism.
Inside the philosophy of science, this comprehensive view is also valid. Our focus is not only on empiricism but also on phenomenology, critical theory, and constructivism. Philosophy of science, in general, and the principles of interdisciplinary inquiry, in particular, serve as guiding principles in this regard.
