The Department's strengths are in ethics, practical - including moral and political - philosophy, the philosophy of economics, business ethics, epistemology and philosophy of mind, and logic. 

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.

Our core areas of expertise are:

  • Political freedom, responsibility, and dignity
  • Corporate governance & ethical business
  • Logic, rationality and game theory
  • Social epistemology
  • Self-knowledge and first-person authority
  • Beliefs and fragmentation
  • Philosophy of technology
