  • Department of Philosophy

    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.

Community - also during difficult times

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. You can research the student council via e-mail or our brand-new discord server (link in sidebar).
