History and Philosophy of the Sciences is a specialisation of the master’s programme in Philosophy.
In the master’s specialisation in History and Philosophy of the Sciences, you will investigate the ways in which philosophy, history, and science interact in the field of humanities. For instance, philosophy is shaped by the contemplation of its history — hence students will acquire skills in both philosophical and historical research. But there is more: cutting-edge philosophy exists through the interaction with mathematics, physics, biology and cognitive science, in addition to linguistics, history, and literary theory.
History and Philosophy of the Sciences is an integral part of the one-year Master’s in Philosophy in 2014-2015, but will be a formal specialisation from September 2015 on.
