Topics in the Philosophy of the Humanities and Social Sciences

Duration: 
September, 2015 to August, 2017
Funding: 
CEU Humanities Initiative
Research Area: 

The project aims to establish Topics of the Philosophy of the Humanities and Social Sciences (ToPHSS) as a new research and teaching focus at CEU. It will cross boundaries between disciplines of the humanities and social sciences concerned with `the human`, that is with human beings, humanity, society, culture, history, and more. It focuses on methodological and ontological issues, in particular on those concerned with contested categories of the humanities and social sciences, and of those primarily on the categories of human, individual and person.

It is one of the initiatives that continue the Philosophy Department`s Human Project.
