Modern & Contemporary Philosophy
Aesthetics, Politics & Knowledge
The main aim is the development of a research work within three core areas: aesthetics, politics and theory of knowledge. The research program articulates two subgroups Aesthetics, Politics and Arts and Modes of Thought and Philosophical Systems.
Mind, Language & Action
The Research Group focuses on specific questions in the philosophy of mind, philosophy of language and philosophy of action. A further goal is to unify ongoing and past projects through continuing work on the history of contemporary philosophy, promoting the convergence of analytic and the non-analytic approaches around questions of mind, language and action.
Roots & Horizons
Em diálogo com alguns autores da tradição filosófica e cultural portuguesa procuraremos antecipar alguns possíveis horizontes do futuro colectivo, verificando em que medida a nossa tradição filosófica e cultural pode propiciar novos paradigmas de pensamento e de existência, contrastantes com o paradigma da civilização tecnológica. A investigação fomentará o diálogo com outras tradições filosóficas e culturais, num esforço de internacionalização, não apenas limitado ao espaço lusófono.
