Research and Projects
The research at TiLPS can be roughly divided into three areas: Logic and Language, Ethics and Social Philosophy, and Epistemology and Philosophy of Science. The research at TiLPS stands in the tradition of exact philosophy – it need not be technical, but it always tries to be clear, inspiring, to the point, and innovative.
Our research methods cover the entire range of modern philosophy: conceptual analysis and historical case studies have their place as well as formal modeling, experimental studies, and computer simulations. We believe that by collaborative work, we can combine the best of different worlds and achieve a beneficial plurality of methods at our institute.
TiLPS hosts a variety of external grants as well as individual and collaborative research projects pertaining to our faculty, our PhD students and our current visiting fellows.
