Munich School of Philosophy (German: Hochschule für Philosophie München) is a small Jesuit university in Munich, Germany founded in 1925. In the German-speaking countries it is the only institution of higher education exclusively specialized in the study of philosophy.

History

Founded as a seminary at Pullach in 1925 by Augustin Bea, first named the Berchmanskolleg, it obtained the ability to issue a doctorate in 1932. In 1971 the school moved to central Munich and opened to non-Jesuit students. The majority of students are not members of the Jesuit Order, and now include women and international students. It is accredited by the Bavarian State Ministry of Sciences, Research and the Arts (in German: Bayerisches Staatsministerium für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Kunst).

Since 2009, the Munich School of Philosophy hosts the yearly Rahner Lecture in memory of the German Jesuit and theologian Karl Rahner.
