Methodology in the History of Philosophy
We are currently updating our course overview for 2021-2022. The information below might be updated.
This summer school will offer an overview of different approaches to the study of the history of philosophy, and reflect on the methodological challenges in history of philosophy. The summer school will also discuss the application of digital humanities approaches to the history of philosophy. Participants will be encouraged to reflect upon their own practices of interpretation, develop a more thought-through method to approach philosophical texts of the past, and learn about exciting new approaches to studying the history of philosophy.
During the keynote sessions, there will be lectures by established scholars. Some of these lectures will deal with the issue of methodology directly, while others will do so by means of a case study of recent research.
Also, there will be short presentations by participants, as well as workshops and round table discussions. Participants who wish to present may either present a short paper on methodology or a case study of their own research.
The summer school will be held entirely online. However, we strive to make the experience of this summer school as close as possible to one taking place in person. The summer school aims to foster interactions between philosophers at different stages of their career, as well as between philosophers working in different fields.
This summer school is partly made possible by support of the European Research Council.
