Boris Rähme, Ph.D. in Philosophy from Freie Universität Berlin, joined ISR’s research team in 2013. Previously, he has been researcher and lecturer at the Department of Philosophy of the Freie Universität Berlin, and Visiting Fellow at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. Moreover, he has held research fellowships with the Universities of Sheffield and Helsinki.
His main research interests are in the fields of argumentation theory, social epistemology, philosophy of religion, and theories of truth. Recently, Rähme has also worked on themes from the philosophy of technology (in particular ICT) and the philosophy of gender.
Together with Paolo Costa, he is currently working on the project Arguing Religion, which focuses on argumentative approaches to religious disagreement and brings together perspectives from recent analytic epistemology, religious studies, and debates on secularity.
