Philosophy

The WU offered already in 1978 the possib­il­ity to study philo­sophy as spe­cial sub­ject. O.Univ. Prof. Dr Jo­hann Mader (De­part­ment of Philo­sophy, Uni­versity of Vi­enna) and later a. o. Univ. Prof. Franz Rupert Hrubi (De­part­ment of Philo­sophy, Uni­versity of Vi­enna) taught un­der­gradu­ate and gradu­ate courses in his­tory of philo­sophy, the the­ory of  know­ledge and in moral  at the WU. In 1988 the Aus­trian min­istry of re­search and science foun­ded an “Ab­teilung für Philo­sophie” at WU Wien whose head was until 2000 a. o. Univ. Prof. Franz Rupert Hrubi (De­part­ment of Philo­sophy, Uni­versity of Vi­enna). The spe­cial sub­ject philo­sophy is – after hav­ing been a part of the “In­sti­tut für Al­legem­ine Pädago­gik und Philo­sop­ghie” – since 2007 in­teg­rated in the In­sti­tute of Eco­nomic and So­cial His­tory. Philo­sophy now can be takes as one of the spe­cial sub­ject in the bach­elor as well as the mas­ter pro­grams at the WU. The WU in ad­di­tion provides the possib­il­ity to study philo­sophy in the con­text of its doc­toral pro­gram.
