The research carried out at the Center has as central axe the work of Martin Heidegger. However, the kind of work that takes place is not only devoted to exegesis and commentary, but, on the contrary, by cross-reading, to articulate different domains and themes of his thought, as well as to visualize the connections, continuities and/or fractures with the works and ideas from other contemporary thinkers. Thus, phenomenology becomes the prime area of our research, since it is the area where converge (and from where also disseminate) different lines of contemporary continental philosophy, mainly from Husserl and Heidegger on. Given the similar topics and problems derived from phenomenology, hermeneutics and deconstruction also become natural areas of our research. Finally, although our main interest lies in fundamental research, the application of some of the methods and concepts used in the field also leads to a critical analysis of cultural phenomena, in order to contribute to their visibility and understanding.
