Strategic Focus

The group’s objective is to carry out studies on human knowledge within the framework of logic, philosophy, science, society, and culture. These developments are grouped together to strengthen them and without excluding the future possibility of their subdivision to achieve more specialized advances. The group is constituted to multiply the collaborative effects that can derive from the interaction between its members. This is due to the potential convergence between the different lines that, despite their particularities and specificities, can be organized into major themes. It is also created with a pretension of pluralism in terms of methods and objects.
