Research Projects at the University of Freiburg

„Nietzsche Commentary“
The Nietzsche Commentary research project is being supervised by the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences and Humanities and is based at the Department of German II (Modern German Literature) of the University of Freiburg. It will examine Nietzsche’s works in their historical context in six substantial volumes (five of them split into two subvolumes), thus creating a new basis for understanding Nietzsche’s thinking and poetical writing.

Commentary of Fragments of Greek Comedy“ (KomFrag)
This research project is being supervised by the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences and Humanities and is based at the Department of Greek and Latin Philology of the University of Freiburg. The  goal of the project is to write scholarly commentaries on all existing fragments of Attic comedy. This involves throwing light on these often difficult texts from all possible perspectives (philology and literary history, archaeology, history) on the one hand, and attempting to reconstruct the plays and describe the author’s place in literary history on the other.

Hans Kelsen research office
This research project is supported by the Academy of Sciences and Literature Mainz and is located at the Institute of Political Science & Philosophy of Law (Department: Public Law and Legal Theory). Hans Kelsen (1881–1973) is one of the most famous lawyers of the 20th century. In collaboration with the Hans Kelsen Institute in Vienna, his works are edited in chronological order and in the language of their first edition. The research office will publish the entire edition in 32 volumes, both printed and digital, by the end of 2042.
