Departement Filosofie

PHC&E Seminars

The Philosophy of Humanities, Culture, and Ethics research group organizes two types of seminars.

The first type of seminar involves public lectures by renowned guest speakers. These lectures are primarily intended for members of the PHC&E Research Group and academic staff of the philosophy department. These lectures are also open to (advanced) students and colleagues from outside of the philosophy department. The lectures are a wonderful opportunity to see what kind of research is being done by colleagues from other philosophy departments in the Netherlands or from abroad who are working in the same thematic areas as the PHC&E group. In addition, the seminar offers staff and students the opportunity to meet the speaker afterwards in a more informal social environment. 

The second type of seminar involves the meetings of the PHC&E research group. Here work in progress by members of the research group or leading articles from the field are discussed. You can attend these meetings by registering with Tim Christiaens
