The main field of interest of scholars involved with the Chair of Philosophy of Technology and Development of Civilization is the analysis of the impact of technical products (mostly computers) on the development of society. We examine philosophical consequences of research practice of computer-assisted empirical sciences as well as ethical and methodological aspects of the development of these sciences. We also analyze the influence of cultural factors and ideological convictions on scientific knowledge as well as issues concerning the formation process of research practice in laboratory sciences.

In other words, the scope of research conducted by our Chair encompasses: philosophy of technology, philosophy of computer science, philosophy of information and philosophical analyses of the development of civilization.
