Department of Christian Philosophy


Welcome to the Homepage of the Department of Philosophy at the Theological Faculty Innsbruck!

We are a lively group of philosophers engaged in a number of fascinating reseach projects. The Department offers competitive graduate and undergraduate programs covering a wide range of fields in core areas of philosophy. Among the special strengths of the Department are classical and modern metaphysics, scholastic philosophy, epistemology, the philosophy of persons and ethics. Additionally, we are among the leading Central European institutions in analytic philosophy of religion.
