Prof. Yun-Ping SunProfessor and Director of the Graduate Institute of Philosophy

    Research and Teaching Profile

    Interested in boundary issues of philosophy, I have been teaching hermeneutics, phenomenology, metaphysics, and philosophy of religion, especially in possible dialogue between German and French philosophers. Aside from Heidegger, Husserl, Scheler, I offered seminars about Nietzsche, Cassirer, Ricoeur, Levinas, Merleau-Ponty, Derrida, etc. to compare the image of man in their philosophy. Recently I am interested in and studying Christian mysticism and spirituality.
