Doctoral School

The école doctorale de philosophie (Doctoral School of Philosophy): a regional doctoral school

Graduates from the Rhône-Alpes Region who are studying for a PhD in Philosophy are attached to the “Philosophie : histoire, représentation, creation” (“Philosophy: history, representation and creation”) Doctoral School, which includes the Lyon 3 and Grenoble-Alpes Universities, and the Lyon ENS (Graduate School).
Its headquarters are located at Lyon 3 University.
This original arrangement was created in order to foster a dynamic between the various philosophy research laboratories, and to benefit from a region rich in centres dedicated to the study of this discipline.
