Philosophy

Short presentation of the programme:

What does it mean to be well-trained philosopher today? With regard to its subjects and methods philosophy is highly varied. That is why the answer to the question about the good training in philosophy depends on our understanding of philosophy. The times when philosophy was a universal theory of reality or theory of the “first principles” both of reality and knowledge about reality lay in the past. Nowadays its task is rather to clarify the concepts that we use, acquiring knowledge about the world and giving the landmarks of our actions, testing new approaches and methods of knowledge, to examine critically the established stereotypes of knowledge and action and the related institutions. Doing all these philosophy is able to help people to think independently and make decisions responsibly. The BA program in philosophy offers a combination of courses of the following three types: 1) courses representing major periods, personalities and schools of thought in history of philosophy (Plato, Aristotle, Hume, Kant, Wittgenstein, Enlightenment, phenomenology, pragmatism etc.), 2) introductions to major disciplines of philosophy (epistemology, ethics, logic, aesthetics, philosophy of mind, philosophy of science etc.), 3) courses on important topics in contemporary science, art, politics and society (moral problems in medicine, free will, populism, publicity and media, moral dilemmas etc.)
