Philosophy Department

This program is dedicated to multidisciplinary questioning universal norms hidden in thought and in language. It is dedicated to the study of continental philosophy from a genealogical and genetic perspective, a history of ideas with an eye towards the problems and questions of the future.

The department’s statement of principle:

Hitherto philosophers have defined the world from a majoritarian viewpoint. Our philosophy program will attempt to express it from that of the minority. Instead of assuming that concepts come ready-made from the history of philosophy, we must construct a new philosophical concept to prove that it can work in today’s world. Instead providing a normative abstraction, we must explain the genesis of ideas so that anyone can put them into practice. The French philosopher Gilles Deleuze once said, “The thinker is not acephalic, aphasic, or illiterate, but becomes so.” We believe that, if philosophy is to set up a dialogue with non-philosophy, it must express the immanent modes of existence who cannot speak. The philosophy in our program is dedicated to finding the real cause of their problems so that we can change the world together.
