Philosophy and History of Ideas
This programme offers a choice between two separate fields of study: Philosophy and History of Ideas.
Philosophy studies fundamental issues about the nature of reality, existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language. Different views on these matters are typically defended through rational arguments.
History of Ideas studies ideas in their historical, intellectual, social and political context. Emphasis is on the question of what these ideas meant to the authors themselves within the history of philosophy, science, literature, religion, and art.
