CFS Newsletter No. 3 - 2015

The Center for Subjectivity Research was established in 2002 as an interdisciplinary "Center of Excellence." In the period 2002-2012 it was funded by the Danish National Research Foundation, with supplementary funding from the University of Copenhagen. Currently, it is host to a number of externally funded research projects. It is located at the Faculty of Humanities, and its current staff is affiliated with the Faculty of Humanities, the Faculty of Theology, and the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences.

"Not only paying lip service to interdisciplinarity"
"The faculty's Center for Subjectivity Research is to phenomenologists what FC Barcelona is to most football players: the team you wish to play for." writes the HUMANIST about the CFS.

HUMANIST has talked with Thomas Szanto, about the upcoming conference on Empathy, Group Membership and We-Intentionality, interdisciplinarity and about what it's like to work at CFS.
