Philosophy & Ethics
What is consciousness? Do we have a free will? As a student in our Research Master's in Philosophy of Mind you will try to answer these questions by combining analytical philosophy, continental phenomenology and empirical data. As a student in our Research Master Philosophy you will arm yourself with all the necessary tools for a future career in academia.
Traditionally, philosophy of mind is part of the analytical tradition in philosophy. Recently, however, a more phenomenological approach to typical questions in the philosophy of mind has provided a refreshing new look on old topics. The advance of cognitive neuroscience is also leaving its trace in the way old questions are posed and answered. Therefore, the research Master’s in Philosophy of Mind combines traditional analytical theorising with insights from phenomenology and the empirical sciences.
