History of Modern Philosophy

Our main research field is history of philosophy and history of ideas, including the historical connection between philosophy, natural sciences and humanities. While duly considering the research into the mainstream topics, our research group lends special attention to Central-European intellectual scene. We focus on the history of Hungarian philosophy, intellectual history as well as history of Hungarian science and humanities in international context. Phenomena in the field of knowledge transfer are also in the centre of our analyses: concerning especially the epochs when the impact of some influential trends in the history of philosophy on Hungarian intellectual life and culture was paramount; having in mind the role too Hungarian philosophers played in European philosophical thought. We also pursue research in the comparative history of Central-European cultures of philosophy. An eminent feature of our work is reflection on methodology as well as on the historiography of philosophy, especially in Hungarian and Central-European context. We are also deeply interested in the interconnected development of historical narratives on philosophy, humanities, and natural sciences.
