There are 22 academics in our department, 7 of them from abroad. We run 6 study programmes, 2 of which are in English. We have 29 PhD students, of whom 13 are international. We foster intensive interdisciplinary cooperation between the Philosophy section, Religious Studies section, and the research-based Centre for Ethics. In the last 6 years, we have published 9 books with high-profile publishers such as Routledge, Palgrave, and Springer and won a number of prestigious grants, such as the EU-funded excellent research grant “Centre for Ethics as Study in Human Value” and two Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowships. We have been active at the University of Pardubice since 2000.
