Cursusdoelen
After the course you will:
  • have a general overview of some of the main figures and themes within western philosophy, from antiquity to the present;
  • have become acquainted with the practice of critically reading philosophical texts;
  • be able to represent the conceptions and ideas of the philosophers and themes discussed.
Inhoud
This course provides a general overview of the historical development of western philosophy from its beginnings (antiquity) to the present. The first half of the course covers ancient and medieval philosophy. During the second half, we will concentrate on modern and contemporary philosophy. In each of the twelve meetings, one philosopher or a group of philosophers will be discussed. The textbook will provide the necessary information with which the thought of the authors discussed can be placed in a broader philosophical and historical context. Primary sources will be distributed during the course, and will be primarily of illustrative nature. Additional secondary literature may be made available via Brightspace.
Toetsinformatie
Two written exams, one after each part of the course (antiquity/medieval and modern/contemporary), each counting for 50%. The final grade is based on both exams.
