The Institute for Philosophy “Alexandru Dragomir”

was founded in 2009 under the auspices of the Romanian Society for Phenomenology, as a private and independent Research Institute, aiming to stimulate the high-quality philosophical research, with a special interest on phenomenology, hermeneutics and history of philosophy.

Interdisciplinary research projects are also welcome, provided that a philosophical dimension is essential. The Institute works by carrying out research grants won by competition, or funded from public or private, national or international sources.
