Organisation profile

The research unit EMEP is mainly dealing with the interdisciplinary study of philosophical problems in the theory of knowledge, philosophical anthropology and the philosophy of mind and language. It is an explicit goal of the unit to bring empirical data to bear on philosophical problems, and to subject claims made in empirical science to philosophical analysis. Current topics of research are: 1. Major conceptual changes in science and philosophy; 2. Popularisation and between-discipline exchange of scientific knowledge; 3. Cognitive science-oriented study of the interaction between philosophy, science of vision and artistic practice; 4. Cognitive science oriented investigation of philosophical problems concerning visual perception, with a focus on the contrast between conscious and non-conscious vision and colour perception.
