George Kampis - Kampis György    
Under permanent construction, and badly maintained. Last edited on Feb. 20, 2019.

I am a recycled engineer turned theoretical biologist, turned philosopher of science turned computational scientist - while maintaining a continuing interest in evolution (so I translated Darwin and won a translator's prize). Also I am involved in cognitive science - actually in more than one ways. These activities are less diverse than they look: complexity, evolution, self-organization, and causality are the connecting keywords.

I am Professor and was founding Head of the Department of History and Philosophy of Science at Eötvös University. The Department was discontinued in 2016, since when I am with the Department of Ethology of the same University. I also serve as Director of the Budapest Semester in Cognitive Science.

I am involved in various national and international projects which add up to another identity.
Besides my permanent job at ELTE, I have joined DFKI (www.dfki.de) for a partial position  in 2012.
