The strengths of the Stuttgart Institute of Philosophy lie in how it links basic research and practical application in the areas of epistemology and philosophy of science, philosophy of technology, esthetics, philosophy of mind, language and culture, ethics and political philosophy.
In the course of your studies, you will refine your philosophical methods and learn to insert yourself in the research discourses in these areas.
You should not shy away from long texts, should work and think carefully, analytically, and creatively. In discourse with your fellow students, you should argumentatively represent your interests in classical, modern and your own theories. You do not need prior philosophical knowledge but must be interested in contemporary social questions and in principle be curious about and have a flair for language.
