The Philosophy & Professional Practice research group contributes to an intellectual climate in which students, lecturers, researchers, employees and administrators feel challenged to coordinate their thoughts and actions.

About the research group

The Philosophy & Professional Practice research group contributes to an intellectual climate in which students, lecturers, researchers, employees and administrators feel challenged to coordinate their thoughts and actions. This may be through organising debates on current topics or by jointly reading classical and contemporary philosophical texts, learning to formulate questions or problems, developing theory or concepts or writing and articulating a well-argued vision and then discussing and debating on other visions.

The research conducted by the research group centres around three themes:

  • Philosophy of people and culture
  • Philosophical reflection on time, rhythm and other forms of arrangement
  • Philosophy, gender and biomedical sciences
