The Research Group for Epistemology focuses on philosophical questions concerning knowledge broadly construed. The horizon of our investigations stretches beyond analytic tradition (in a strict sense) and incorporates historic, hermeneutic, and phenomenological accounts. Discussions about representationalism (a vivid tradition from the times of Descartes) provide the main ground for our ongoing studies. Our research addresses recent debates in epistemology, reconsidering their results both for the historical and the analytical traditions. Historically, there is a particular emphasis on the evolution of linguistic and other representational means and their impact on epistemological attitudes and methodologies. Lessons from our investigations pave the way towards an epistemological theory for the humanities.
