What will you learn?

The study of philosophy gives insight into general but precise ways of recognizing problems, asking questions, specifying the conceptual equipment, identifying possible answers and assessing them. It develops analytical and critical equipment, promotes consistency in thinking, cultivates the ability to accurately interpret the meaning of the message. The key value of studying philosophy is rationality; the student will become acquainted not only with general procedures of rational analysis, but also with their specific forms in traditional questions concerning existence, cognition, acting or decision making. The study of philosophy is a suitable preparation for particular critical engagement, leads to intellectual autonomy and the acquired abilities are well transferable to other research areas thanks to the emphasis on the development of interpretative and formulative habits.

Practical training

Practical training is not an obligatory part of the study plan.
