FoNTI: Forms of Normativity - Transitions and Intersections

Substantial progress has recently been made in our understanding of the nature and structure of normativity in every domain. Seminal recent contributions are concerned with the normativity of life, mind, action, sociality, logic, mathematics, etc. The FWF-funded project "Forms of Normativity - Transitions and Intersections" (FoNTI) employs ten PhD-students approaching the broad topic of normativity in an unique and novel way. The internationally selected researchers are geared towards research at the intersections between established subfields in normativity research. The intersectional approach proposed in this research scheme is guided by the hypothesis that the advances in specialized normativity research, on the one hand, and the general “top-down” abstract understanding of the overall landscape of normative phenomena, on the other hand, should be complemented by exploring the intersections between well-studied research foci in the field in detailed analysis.
