Philosophy & Ethics
In the Specialisation Philosophical Ethics, you research the moral conflicts and ethical issues in contemporary Western culture and frame them against the backdrop of continental European philosophy. As a student in our Research Master Philosophy you will learn all the tools for a career in academics. You will be affiliated with the Center for Contemporary European Philosophy which offers you a chance to experience what it is like to work in a professional academic environment.
During your studies you will unravel the ethical presuppositions that underlie contemporary socio-cultural debates. The hermeneutical perspective – which is characteristic of philosophical ethics at Radboud University – combines the precise interpretation of influential texts with a focus on culture philosophical approaches, phenomenological analysis and ethical applications. A unique addition in the ethical discussion is the attention for ethical issues, especially in literary sources. Key authors for this specialisation are Aristotle, Thomas Aquinas, Kant, Hegel, Schleiermacher, Heidegger, Gadamer, Levinas, Ricoeur, Habermas, Taylor and Toulmin.
