“CEU’s Department of Philosophy is highly suitable for almost any research in analytic philosophy. It provides students with high-quality courses, weekly colloquia with speakers from leading universities, research groups, regular conferences and consultations on an individual basis with top figures in the field. Most importantly, however, you learn a lot not only from your professors but from colleagues eager to discuss difficult philosophical topics on a daily basis.”

The interdisciplinary programs of the Department of Philosophy at Central European University uniquely combine historical and analytic approaches to major areas of philosophical study, allowing for a fruitful dialogue between contemporary philosophy and its history. The department works in close collaboration with CEU’s Departments of Cognitive Science and Political Science.
