For over 100 years, the subject of philosophy has been at the heart of our publishing programme. And because of this, De Gruyter continues to publish important, well-known works such as the Academy Editions of Kant and Leibniz as well as the Complete Works of Marx-Engels and Nietzsche.

Close collaboration with our scientific and scholarly authors is an integral part of our publishing endeavours. We work with renowned scientific institutions such as the Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie and the Kant Gesellschaft, which enables us to maintain the exceptional quality of the contents of our titles and at the same time stay abreast of the newest developments in philosophy.

Our portfolio includes all philosophical disciplines and product forms and even resonates with scientists in associated fields.
