Established in 2002, the Institute of Philosophy is the sole academic institution in Southern Taiwan to promote understanding and investigation of Contemporary European Philosophy. Defining philosophy as a fundamental methodology for the whole of socio-human sciences — including the theories of literature and art — we pursue to educate students to be acquainted with philosophical problems as well as interdisciplinary issues.

After years of far-sighted planning and efforts of faculty members and students, the Institute has, little by little, established a solid ground for academic research. Apart from teaching and research in philosophy, we are actively involved in dialogues with disciplines beyond philosophy, at home as well as abroad. Thus we manage to enhance the academic position of the Institute continually.
