» Mission statement 

Studying philosophy at Technische Universität Braunschweig is, in a way, special. Because you learn to think about the implications of a technological world while this world is actually made. Therefore, Braunschweig’s philosophers offer students from all faculties courses in which present technologies and scientific knowledge is analyzed and grounded from a humanities’ perspective. Our approaches encompass methods from philosophy of science and technology, ethics, political philosophy, philosophy of law, philosophy of nature, anthropology, social philosophy, epistemology, philosophy of mind and history of philosophy.

Braunschweig’s Institute of Philosophy is engaged in debating interdisciplinary and intercultural questions, and also the relations of philosophy and gender studies. We see the emerging field of Science and Technology Studies (STS) as an opportunity to newly reflect on old philosophical problems. Therefore, we also set a high value on classical philosophy education based on the ideas that have emerged and still emerge from antiquity, the middle ages, the early modern period and the modern ages.
