Welcome to the new homepage of the Institute of Philosophy! We hoped to create a modern website with blog-like capabilities that, besides informing the general public about research conducted in our Institute, may reach a wider audience interested in philosophy and related events in Hungary.

Currently the page is under construction; please check on us again in a couple of days!
