Professor Dolf Rami

Professor Dolf Rami received a Heisenberg professorship in 2019. In his project he deals with questions of existence.

Dolf Rami studied philosophy and history at the University of Graz, where he received his Master’s degree in 2000. In the following year, he completed a Munich Post Graduate Year at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, where he studied Philosophy and Theoretical Linguistics. In 2002, he moved to the Technical University of Dresden, where he received his doctorate in 2006. Between 2002 and 2006, he was involved in the Philosophical Project of the Collaborative Research Center “Institutionality and Historicality” in Dresden and worked at the Institute of Philosophy between 2003 and 2006. In 2006, he joined the Department of Philosophy at the University of Göttingen. From 2010 to 2012, he was a Visiting Research Fellow at King’s College London with a Feodor Lynen Fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. After his habilitation in 2015, he temporarily headed the Chair of Theoretical Philosophy at the Philosophical Seminar of the University of Göttingen. In April 2019, he was appointed to Ruhr University Bochum.

His Heisenberg project deals with the semantics and ontology of existential statements in natural languages and thus works at the interface between metaphysics, philosophy of language, philosophy of logic, and philosophical logic.
