The RG “Philosophy of Technology, Human Sciences, Art and Society” covers four Research Line (RL):

1) Science and Art
2) Science-Art-Philosophy Lab
3) Philosophy of Human Technology
4) Philosophy of Human Sciences, Ethics and Politics

RL1 is interested in the role of images in Art and Science. It aims to develop an Ontology of Image that matches problems and challenges of contemporary Philosophy, Arts and Science. Additionally, it studies the theoretical crossovers between science and art, engaging in questions such as: what are the parallels between Science and Art? What does scientific and artistic creation have in common?

RL2 is dedicated to the reinvention of the traditional external observer perspective of philosophers by actively engaging them in innovative experimental tasks with scientists and artists. Scientists and artists are actively engaged in philosophical questions, while philosophers try to take up the challenges stemming from Science and Art.

RL3 branches in three areas of research: i) how emergent technologies constitute and amplify human experiences or put autonomy, personhood, freedom, privacy and human life in question; ii) how instruments, artifacts, techniques and bodily senses in their poetic actions, kinetics (e.g. gesture and diagrams) and aesthetic qualities, produce and transform human knowledge, experience and social life; and iii) how policy makers and the public should be advised in questions of technology.

RL4 focuses in the interdisciplinary links between social sciences and humanities and between science and common-sense. It uses case studies to assess the impact of new digital technologies on the production and transmission of knowledge in higher education institutions.
