Research Focus

Christoph Schamberger is concerned with deep disagreement that arises in political and ideological controversies. He works on examples from the debate about development aid, where he carves out the characteristics of political arguments and distinguishes them from philosophical arguments. He examines why such debates usually do not lead to agreement and why it is nevertheless reasonable to take part in them and press one's point of view.
