Philosophy

The Netherlands Institute at Athens organizes, often in cooperation with other parties,  lectures, conferences or workshops on philosophical subjects. We welcome presentations of Greek and Dutch scholars on all areas of philosophy of science and philosophy (metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, philosophy of language, philosophy of mind, history of philosophy, social and political philosophy) .

We aim to explore the philosophical traditions of Greece and The Netherlands, make a comparison of their contribution and their possible interactions, to reflect its cooperation with other disciplines and emphasize the importance of philosophical thought in public discourse on issues affecting modern Europe. Because of the history of the two countries in the field of philosophy, we believe that these activities can lead to a fruitful philosophical dialogue and highlight the continuity, rupture and transformation of thought in Greece and the Netherlands.
