Welcome to the Department of Philosophy!

We warmly welcome you to the Department of Philosophy, a place of lively intellectual discussion of basic theoretical and practical questions of mankind: What is truth? Why is something at all and not rather nothing? What is the human being? Where do we come from? Where are we going? What makes a good life? How can we talk reasonably about God? Why does religion exist and what is its meaning? What is the beautiful thing?

Are you thinking about studying philosophy? If necessary, you are welcome to arrange a consultation with Univ.-Prof. Dr. Rolf Darge (, 0662/8044-2528) or Assoz.-Prof. Dr. Michael Zichy (, 0662/8044-2548).
