Research of the Department of the History of Philosophy

Our research is geared towards the highest level of philosophical and historical scholarship. It has been ranked as excellent by successive national review committees, and it is considered to be at the top of Dutch philosophical departments. Our PhD-students are given a personal and intensive supervision.

In addition to monographs, we publish in a wide range of venues, usually in internationally refereed journals and collected volumes, but also, dependent on the subject and the intended audience, in more popular media and newspapers. For fuller details see the web pages of the individual members.

Since October 2015, the Department hosts the Groningen Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Thought . The Centre promotes research able to uncover the multifaceted nature of medieval and early modern philosophical debates, their interconnections with other areas of the history of philosophy and science, and how their legacy might still affect today’s philosophical debates.
