The Section Political Philosophy

How can we live together in a good and just way? Political philosophy puts this question into the centre of attention and researches and formulates well-founded answers to it. The historical-critical reconstruction of systematically relevant theoretical approaches and the reflection on how to shape legitimate political conditions are always related to political topicality.

The study of Political Philosophy at the University of Graz aims at providing the knowledge and skills necessary for a comprehensive analysis of the political present, its dynamics and problems, and for a differentiated self-understanding. Philosophical concepts of justice, democracy, state and society, of the subject, freedom and power, of the importance of institutions, of the rights of people and citizens are continuously confronted with the questions and challenges of an increasingly complex world. The profound study of concepts and works of the history of ideas is accompanied and complemented by the cultivation of a lively culture of discussion. Philosophical concepts of justice, democracy, state and society, of the subject, freedom and power, of the importance of independent institutions, of the rights of all people and of citizens are continuously confronted with the questions and challenges of an increasingly complex world.
