About the Group

The group is an arena for research cooperation among researchers at UiO who work in the realm of ethics and practical philosophy, and collaborating researchers at other institutions in Norway and abroad. The current members belong to a great variety of academic fields within law studies, philosophy and social sciences.


The goal of the Practical Philosophy Group is to create a productive working environment for research collaboration on current research topics within the respective fields; to facilitate funding applications; and to organize regular and irregular research activities and events.

The regular meeting of the group, the Practical Philosophy Seminar, takes place on Thursdays from 12.15 to 13 in Room 452, Georg Morgenstiernes Hus, 4th floor (unless otherwise noted).
