About the Programme
Kant asked three questions – What can I know? What ought I to do? What can I hope for? Which all lead to the one question: 'What is a man?' Philosophical Anthropology combines the most disparate branches of philosophy which are one way or another related to human existence and action.
The Master’s programme 'Philosophical Anthropology' provokes many questions and brings together all four sections of the philosophy faculty: Ontology, Logic and Epistemology; History of Philosophy, Applied Philosophy (ethics, political philosophy, philosophy of management and of law), Science and Culture. Students will be offered a solid grounding in all areas of the subject including contemporary problems of philosophy, value systems on different levels, social perspectives and ideological programmes
The aim of the programme is to imbue the graduates with a many-sided (including interdisciplinary) education of a fundamental nature, to develop the skills required for scientific research and teaching, and the ability to use various approaches, methods, theoretical models and research tools to analyse different concepts and social problems.
