Understanding and the Apriori - Emmy Noether Research Group
Our research group is sponsored by the DFG and hosted by the University of Cologne. The group is dedicated to the study of a priori knowledge. We are especially interested in the cognitive capacity of understanding and its role in a priori justification, the relationship between apriority and necessity, and the methodology of philosophy as a distinctive armchair discipline.
For more information about our project and its research goals see Project.
The group brings together Researchers working in philosophy of language, philosophy of mind, epistemology, metaphysics and phenomenology. We have Cooperations with philosophers, psychologists, linguists and cognitive scientists in Europe, the US and Australia.
We have an ongoing series of workshops, the Emmy Noether Armchair Lab, which meets at least twice per year. We also organize regular conferences, and we run a weekly research seminar in Cologne. For more information see Project Events.
