This four-year research project proceeds from the assumption that Hermann Weyl’s writings contain several more or less developed ideas towards a philosophy of physics that is firmly rooted within the framework of Husserl’s phenomenology. The main objective of the project is to identify and critically evaluate these ideas, and to turn them into a systematic whole. Ideally, the final outcome of the project will be the outline of a genuinely phenomenological philosophy of physics that opens up new ways to think about the nature of physics and scientific cognition. A longer project description can be found here.
The project is carried out by Harald A. Wiltsche (PI) and Philipp Berghofer (Post-Doc Researcher). It is affiliated with the Department for Philosophy (Working Unit Phenomenology) and the Center for History of Science, both at the University of Graz. The main cooperation partners are Thomas Ryckman (Stanford University) and Axel Maas (Department for Physics, University of Graz). A full list of cooperation partners can be found here.
The project is made possible through a generous grant of the Austrian Science Fund (project number: P31758).
