Welcome to UBT Philosophy
The Department of Philosophy is one of the most dynamic and international in Germany.
We have grown from two to seven professorships and a regular visiting professorship within ten years. In 2015/16 we will see the addition of two more colleagues. What makes the department so exciting is not just what is happening here but is that we are a force for change: our analytical focus, our concern with the practical questions of social and economic justice and well-being, and our open and explicit joint venture with the economics department is starting to influence the course of development and renewal of academic philosophy in Germany. Philosophy in Bayreuth is all about the relevance of the philosophical enterprise to bringing about changes in the world. ...more

Please note that this website is a new rollout. We have given the Department of Philosophy a separate existence from the P&E Programme page which has also received a makeover in the new UBT web design. Both sites however are still work in progress, so please be patient with missing and deadlinks or pages under construction.
