Division of History of Ideas and Sciences

Organisational unit: Division


Research in history of ideas and sciences at Lund University is broad. Our specialities include studies of early modernity, history of philosophy and a more recent emphasis on conceptual history. In addition to this, several researchers are showing an interest in the history of science, technology and medicine. These different orientations within the field of History of Ideas and Sciences at Lund combine well together, as they share a common starting point in the interest in providing a cultural-historical perspective ensuring that the historical analyses are embedded in their ideological and cultural context. The importance of context for understanding and interpreting different historical phenomena has always been highly valued within the field of History of Ideas and Sciences in Sweden, and is also the glue that binds the different interests and orientations found at the research environment for the field at Lund University together. The division has a PhD program in History of Ideas.
