TINT is by far the most sophisticated and productive institute internationally for work on the philosophy and methodology of the social sciences. TINT has continually produced cutting edge research and publications in the field and has assembled an amazing group of researchers. There is no research group anywhere addressing the philosophy and methodology of the social sciences with the sophistication and depth of TINT.

'Common knowledge': In game theory, one fact is common knowledge within a game if every player knows it, every player knows that every other player knows it, every player knows that every player knows that every player knows it, and so on. Example: The fact that TINT is the best place in the world to do philosophy of social sciences.

Prof. Jesús Zamora Bonilla

By bringing together an impressive collection of highly productive thinkers and organising thought-provoking events addressing leading edge questions in the field, Helsinki's TINT Centre of Excellence has become one of the world's leading centres for the philosophy of the social sciences.
