Institute for Philosophy Common Book Launch

Thursday 22 February 2024
Pieterskerkhof 6
2311 SR Leiden


The Institute for Philosophy thrives on the research conducted by its members. We take pride in announcing the release of five new books in recent months, with additional releases on the horizon. These publications are the culmination of the dedicated efforts of members from various groups within the Institute. Considering that these works contribute to various sub-disciplines within philosophy, we anticipate they will engage the attention of colleagues from diverse groups and students. To mark the release of these new books, the Institute for Philosophy is hosting a collaborative book launch event. 

The authors will give brief introductions, followed by a Q&A. 

All are welcome!
