The section of History of Philosophy covers the period from antiquity to the early 20th century. The current research focuses are on early modern philosophy (especially epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of mind and moral psychology) and history of philosophy of the late 19th and early 20th century (Prof. Renz), medieval philosophy (Prof. Berger), and Austrian Philosophy. There is intensive cooperation with the Alexius Meinong Institute, which houses the Documentation Centre for Austrian Philosophy. It is in possession of the literary estates of a number of philosophers and publishes the Meinong Studies. The section of History of Philosophy also includes the Franz Brentano Archives and Franz Brentano’s library of about 900 volumes.
