This project A2 continues the work of project A2 in the first phase, exploring creative abduction as method of inductive metaphysics.
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, applied ethics, the philosophies of technology, artefacts, and art, as well as the 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.
