(see additional details below):
In this course you are invited to participate in an activity that is about 2 500 years old and you are expected to develop your own ideas about the philosophical problems, theories and arguments. You will be challenged to think critically on your own, but always taking into consideration what the others had and have to say about those matters.
Philosophy enhances the improvement of the analysis of personal convictions, the understanding of the diversity of arguments of others and the awareness of the limited character of our knowledge. In this sense, philosophy is a basic and important part of education and an instrument for making democratic life deeper.
As a participant in this philosophy course you will be challenged to think critically and learn to think with the ideas and points of view of past and contemporary philosophers. You can expect to write, read and debate extensively, always by means of an argumentative discourse and weekly assignments.
There is no media kit for this class. All texts and materials can be found or downloaded from the internet
