About the Chair

The Chair of Political Theory and History of Political Thought focuses on the research and teaching of the history of political thought, systematic and normative dimensions of political science analysis. This includes critical reflection on the historical and cultural relativity of a centralised political sense of social order, the systematic analysis of abstract concepts and interpretations as well as normative debate about the legitimacy of political order. The chair conducts fundamental theoretical and empirical research into the creation and development of democratic constitutional order as well as the ideas of constitutionalism and democracy.
