About IEF - Universidade de Coimbra

The Institute of Philosophical Studies is a Research & Development Unit based in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities of the University of Coimbra that hosts doctorate Philosophy investigators of all origins – while members – and that is opened to all those – as collaborative members – wishing to join the philosophical investigation or deepen it. The Institute of Philosophical Studies supports the training and initiation of young investigators and provides institutional expression and disclosure to the high-end philosophical investigation, in the several dimensions in which Philosophy is still materializing today. It is its conviction that the philosophical meditation and work are a real path to rethink a heritage, think and acknowledge the appeals from today, and provide an answer for the more urgent challenges of an always inquisitive future. With a solid history and an unmatched international expansion, the research work of the Institute of Philosophical Studies is achieved in the several Research Groups, in which all members are organized, promote Conferences, Permanent Seminars in Philosophy, Open Classes, publications and national and international contacts aiming the philosophical exchange of the highest level and accuracy. The Institute of Philosophical Studies welcomes all those who wish to visit or associate with it.
