Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Department of Philosophy

Prof. Dr. Annina Loets



I’m a junior professor of Theoretical Philosophy at Humboldt-University in Berlin. My research interests lie in metaphysics, the philosophy of logic and language and epistemology. I’m particularly interested in the metaphysics of ordinary objects, persons, the social world, and the questions about modality, vagueness and reference to which they give rise.


I received a B.A. in Philosophy and Social Sciences and an M.A. in Philosophy from Humboldt-University, as well as a a BPhil in Philosophy from the University of Oxford. In 2020 I was awarded a DPhil in Philosophy for a dissertation on qua-qualifications. From July 2020 to March 2021, I was a postdoc at the Human Abilities project and Mitarbeiterin at Freie Universität Berlin.
