The Department of Philosophy strength lies in ethics, in moral and political philosophy, in the philosophy of economics, in business ethics, and logic. We have a strong decision-theoretic and formal focus in both research and teaching.
UBT Philosophy is one of Germany's leading research centres at the intersection of philosophy & economics. UBT philosophy is "philosophy for policy." We are well networked internationally, with close research collaborations with major universities in Europe, the US, Canada, India and China.
