Philosophy III - Metaphysics and Philosophy of Science

Metaphysics, especially metaphysics of science — natural laws, dispositions, causality, modality — is the research focus of Philosophy III. The team around Professor Markus Schrenk has yet wider research and teaching interests: We also focus on epistemology (especially modal theories of knowledge), thought experiments, the philosophy of art, and philosophy of mathematics.

The research projects "Modelling, Error-Robustness and Grounding Explanations" of the DFG research group "Inductive Metaphysics" and "What is proprioceptive Art?" are located here. We also organise denXte, Heinrich Heine University’s interactive philosophical event series, winner of the Communicator Award 2022.
