About us

At our department our researchers, teachers and students work with some of the most fundamental issues of human thought and communication; many of today's sciences and everyday conceptions originate with these questions. We provide training in basic critical thinking that can be applied to virtually any other area or discipline. Our subjects are ideal as an introduction or complement to almost any kind of studies or research.

The Department of Philosophy, Linguistics, and Theory of Science, one of six departments at the Faculty of Humanities, is situated at Renströmsgatan 6, within walking distance to the city center.

Our department, founded in 2009, is devided into the 3 units. You can find all staff members and links to their personal web pages under the units.
