Berggruen Institute Philosophy & Culture Fellows for 2016-17

Berggruen Institute

The Fellowship program of the Berggruen Philosophy and Culture Center is proud to announce the 2016-2017 cohort. The Berggruen Fellowship program in partnership with Stanford, Harvard, NYU, Peking, Tsinghua, Oxford, and Cambridge Universities supports individuals and teams of researchers who bring insights from the humanities and social science to key intellectual and public issues across cultures.

Topics the 2016-2017 Berggruen fellows will research include:

  • The Individual and the World 
  • The Future of Political Governance
  •  Humans and Technology

The Philosophy and Culture center works to advance understanding of the most basic dimensions of human life, culture, and politics through research that comes from fresh encounters across fields and cultures. It seeks knowledge that can provide a deeper background to political and economic relationships and ideas that can shape the future.

Each fellow was selected based on the scope, potential outcome, and research originality of their proposals. Meet each of our fellows here.
