Tatjana Schönwälder-Kuntze studied philosophy, psychology, and logic and philosophy of science at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich, where she completed a PhD dissertation entitled, Authentic Freedom: Grounding Ethics after Sartre, in 2000 as well as her Habilitation, Kantian Freedom as a Norm? Modern Theory Building and the Effect of Kantian Moral Philosophy, in 2007. She is currently Adjunct Professor of Philosophy at LMU Munich as well as Research Fellow at the Institut für Sozialforschung in Frankfurt and, since 2011, holds a Heisenberg scholarship from the German Research Foundation.

Her current research project investigates how these concepts are linked to economic systems, as well as to economic theory building.
