OZSW study groups

The purpose of an OZSW study group is to develop collective research-related activities in a certain philosophical area or on a certain philosophical topic. These activities can consist of seminars, discussion sessions, reading groups and the like. The study groups are open to OZSW and non-OZSW members, but the majority of the members of a study group should be OZSW members. All members should be active in scientific research or academic graduate education (not necessarily philosophical research or education). At the moment the following study groups are active within the OZSW:
