Philosophy and History of Ideas

The philosophy of mind and language and the theory and philosophy of science are main areas of research in the recently initiated Centre of Excellence, the Centre for the Study of Mind in Nature (CSMN). The theory of science seen in a historical perspective is a project within the field of history of ideas.

Ethics and theories of normativity are other important areas of research, partly within CSMN, but above all through The Ethics Programme – an interdisciplinary and cross-faculty programme administered from the Department. Ethics from an historical point of view is the topic of The Oslo Happiness Project, which is conducted in cooperation between scholars of Greek and Philosophy.
