|Degree:||Master of Philosophy (MPhil)|
Philosophy & Ethics
If you choose for the Master's specialisation in Metaphysics and Epistemology you will be totally immersed in the contemporary debate of one of the most important fields of Philosophy. As a Research Master’s student, you’ll be affiliated with the Center for Contemporary European Philosophy and we offer enough courses in continental philosophy in order for you to fill your entire programme with it.
The specialisation in Metaphysics and Epistemology looks at the age-old fundamental questions regarding being, truth and reality from a contemporary viewpoint with the help of modern philosophers. Of course, you’ll also examine these questions in the light of major thinkers from the hermeneutic tradition and from the continental tradition who were critical of these hermeneutic developments in philosophy. But again, with a contemporary aim: What new and original insights can these philosophers of the past give us today?
