 Fritz Thyssen Stiftung: Philosophy
Since the claim of philosophy to universally valid concepts and arguments is disputed, a third task presents itself: either to abandon the claim of the universal validity of philosophy and of universal human reason; or, particularly in this era of globalization, to renew the claim by means of intercultural and transcultural discourse.
The Fritz Thyssen Stiftung supports philosophy in its entire historical and systematic breadth, including periods and areas which are not in the mainstream of current research.
In the history of philosophy the classical authors are to some extent emphasized; interpretations and commentaries, both within and without the Greek and German philosophical highpoints, can be supported.
