The proposed research programme is composed of two fields of philosophical inquiry, history of philosophy and phenomenology, which are structurally interconnected. It also addresses the basic questions in the field of philosophical systematization as defined by different philosophical discipines, such as metaphysics, logic, ethics, aesthetics and philosophy of religion. The aim of the project is to investigate particular periods in the history of philosophy, examining at the same time the presence and topicality of philosophical and intellectual legacy in the contemporary dialogue between different cultures worldwide. The work programme on Asian philosophies contains the study of those traditional currents in Japanese and Chinese philosophy that can be proved to have affected the philosophical thought of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The research on Greek philosophy focuses on certain basic concerns of the Platonic and Aristotelian philosophy: the genesis of Plato’s philosophy, metaphysics and platonism; fundamental problems of Aristotelian thought: logic, metaphysics, philosophy of science; ethics, politics, rhetoric, poetics. The researh of modern philosophy consists of two investigations: philosophy of Malebranche, and Descartes and the rise of aesthetic theory. The historical part the programme provides an investigation of the 20th century philosophy, especially phenomenology and philosophical hermeneutics. The following are the main themes of the phenomenological section of the programme: phenomenology and theology, philosophy of religion and the notion of the sacred in Heidegger’s later thinking; scientific culture, crisis of humanity and forgetfulness of the world, differences between cultures and worldliness of the world; philosophical hermeneutics, phenomenological aesthetic thinking (Husserl and Ingarden); hermeneutical phenomenology and history of philosophy: the reception of Plato and Aristotle in German philosophy of the 19th and 20th centuries (Heidegger, Gadamer). The historical and phenomenological investigations are carried out systematically and with the aim to give philosophical answers to some important contemporary issues and questions such as sense of being, human being and truth, politics and values, humanities and spiritual basis of the present-day Europe, relations between sciences, religion and art, nature and society. The research in history of philosophy together with hermeneutical and phenomenological investigations has a significant role in the contemporary dialogue with other cultures. A substantial part of the whole research are translations and commentaries of classical philosophical texts, both Greek and modern, which are of the utmost importance for cultural development of the Slovene nation.
