About the Research Group

The research group "Methodology and Philosophy of Science" at the Institute for Political Science at Technische Universität Darmstadt is chaired by Björn Egner. Research conducted by members of the section is combining methodological questions and comparative politics with a focus on governance arrangements in multi-level systems. 

Courses related to philosophy of science are discussing basic epistemologic and methodologic questions for the possibilities, constraints and validity of knowledge in social science. Building on this fundament, students are taught basic knowledge about the application of qualitative and quantitative methods. Besides that, students are helped to develop critical awareness of the use of methods. The main objective is to enable students to understand literature dealing with sophisticated methods in social science. Additionally, students should be supported in creating their own research designs and implementing them independently.

The group is also responsible for the coordination of all degree programmes including political science at Technische Universität Darmstadt.
