Welcome to the website of the Department of Philosophy at Bielefeld University. The Department of Philosophy understands itself as a lively place for committed philosophical research and intensive philosophical teaching.
A university is usually a buzzing place where people meet everywhere, get into a conversation, and make contacts. Things are different at the moment. But we don't have to do without the community! Feel free to use the digital resources available to you to socialize and exchange ideas.
Under the current circumstances, you can still reach the student council as usual. Either via e-mail or, brand new, also via our discord server. Here you have the opportunity to network with your fellow students and to be up-to-date when there is news from us.
From March 10 to 12, an online workshop on Conceptual Engineering will take place at the Philosophy Department, organized by Christian Nimtz and Steffen Koch.
