Welcome to the Department of Philosophy

The department of philosophy at Stockholm University is the largest philosophy department in Sweden. We host many prominent researchers in various fields, including Logic, Philosophy of Language/Mind/Science, Ethics, and Political Philosophy. In 2008, Philosophy was selected as one of the leading research areas at Stockholm University. With our beautiful location in the heart of the National City Park, we can provide a unique and stimulating environment for philosophical research. We have a strong international profile. Faculty members and graduate students publish regularly in international journals, and each academic year we have several visitors from all over the world. We regularly invite internationally renowned philosophers to our colloquium, and every second year, a particularly eminent figure is invited to give the Wedberg Lectures.
