About the project

The project is initiated by the disciplines of Philosophy and the History of ideas at IFIKK at the University of Oslo and the Department of philosophy at the University of Tromsø. In addition to the history of philosophy and ideas in the period of 600 BC-1800 AD the project is open to ethical, metaphysical, aesthetic, and theological topics, as well as the various intersections of these and other themes.


The primary objective is to improve the range and quality of research training in the history of philosophy in Norway. A secondary objective is to increase collaboration in this field between Norwegian universities and to embark on a project that may lead to a full organized research training in the history of philosophy at a national level and even at a Nordic level.


Estimated project period: July 2012- June 2015


The project is financed by The Research Council of Norway and the University of Oslo.


The project is a cooperation between The Deparment of Philosophy, Classics and History of Art and Ideas, UiO and the Department of Philosophy at the University of Tromsø.
