DEPARTMENT OF PHILOSOPHY
History: The Institute’s Department of Philosophy was founded in 2016.
Activities: The Department does not promote any particular philosophical school, approach or ideology. Rather, it aims to gain an understanding of all problems from multiple perspectives and examine them using varied methods. Research and activities are therefore focused on encouraging cooperation between different academic fields, institutions and traditions. The Department’s activities are beneficial to science in Serbia and the region because they keep abreast with the philosophical thought, encourage cooperation with international institutions, professional associations and teams, and study the traditional philosophical problems and issues, as well as those emerging with the development of science and changes in society.
Aims: Promoting the philosophical thought by encouraging debate and critical analysis. Accordingly, the Department focuses on various fields of philosophy: topics and problems in the domain of ethics, history of philosophy, logics, philosophy of religion, philosophy and history of science, philosophy of language, epistemology, aesthetics, political philosophy and gender studies.
