Fellows

The Center for Post-Kantian Philosophy hosts a group of international fellows in Potsdam each year. The fellows pursue individual or collaborative research projects in post-Kantian philosophy and have the chance for extensive exchange with other fellows and the team of researchers permanently affiliated with the center. The Potsdam Center hosts fellows on the professorial, post-doctoral, and doctoral level.
