Partner Institutions

Representation and Reality collaborates with the following partner institutiones 2013–2019.

Charles Burnett and The Warburg Institute

Charles Burnett has been Professor of the History of Islamic Influences in Europé at the Warburg Institute, University of London, since 1999. His work has centred on the transmission of Arabic science and philosophy to Western Europe.

The Warburg Institute is a research institute within the School of Advanced Study of the University of London. It includes an Archive, Library and a Photographic Collection. These aim to provide the means of research into the processes by which one culture influences or is influenced by another. They seek to document the links between the thought, literature, art and institutions of post-classical Europe and those of Greece and Rome, and the effects of the Near East on Mediterranean civilisation.

The Institute is particularly strong in the areas of Renaissance philosophy and Science, and Arabic philosophy and its influence in Europe.

Dieter Harlfinger and Commentaria in Aristotelem Graeca et Byzantina (CAGB)

Professor Harlfinger directs the project on the Byzantine and late Ancient commentators on Aristotle at the Berlin-Brandenburgischen Akademie der Wissenschaften, Commentaria in Aristotelem Graeca et Byzantina. The project critically edits the Byzantine commentators, supplying also translations and interpretations of the texts. During the next few years, the Academy will focus on the Parva Naturalia which is highly relevant to the scope of Representation and Reality.

Dominik Perler and Excellence Cluster Topoi, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin

Perler is Professor of Philosophy at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. His research focuses on medieval and early modern philosophy, mostly in the areas of philosophy of mind, epistemology and ontology.

Within the framework of the Excellence Cluster Topoi, Research Group D-III-E-II-2 (Body and Mind) seeks to investigate which concepts of the localization of faculties of the soul and of the diseases of mind were developed in ancient times and how these ancient theories contributed to the concepts of modern times. In order to develop a comparative approach, texts by Plato, selected Platonists, Aristotle, selected Aristotelians, Galen, and modern Aristotelians are to be analyzed.

Dan Zahavi and The Center for Subjectivity Research

Professor Dan Zahavi has directed the Center for Subjectivity Research since 2002. As co-editor-in-chief of the journal Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences he has been one of the prime movers behind recent attempts to synthesize insights from phenomenology, philosophy of mind and cognitive science.

The Center for Subjectivity Research at the University of Copenhagen was established in 2002. Since then it has achieved considerable international recognition for its research on self and intersubjectivity that draw on and combine the resources of phenomenology, philosophy of mind and cognitive science (including psychiatry, developmental psychology, and neuroscience). This is particularly evident not only from the many invited plenary talks given by the senior researchers at the Center, by the many invited contributions to authoritative handbooks, by its many publications in international peer-reviewed journals and book series, but also from the increasing
