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.
