Focal areas of research

One of the key areas of research at the Chair of Classical Greek is the analysis of ancient philosophy. Prof. Dr. Christian Mueller-Goldingen has published several papers on Aristotle, most recently an introduction and commentary on books 1, 3, 7 and 8 of his 'Politics' (Heidelberg 2016). A second volume is currently underway. At the Chair of Latin, the focus is on the literature of the Late Republic and the Early Imperial Period. Prof. Dr. Dennis Pausch is heading a DFG research project on intended anachronisms. Within this framework, Philipp Geitner is writing a dissertation on the topic 'Untimely Present. The Anachronism in Ovid's Metamorphoses'. Moreover, since 2017, the Institute of Classical Philology has been involved in the Collaborative Research Centre 1285 'Invectivity. Constellations and Dynamics of Disparagement' with a Latin sub-project.
