Philosophical Anthropology and Philosophy of Culture is a specialisation of the one-year master’s programme in Philosophy.
What are human beings? What is their position in nature at large? Is there a principle that sets humans apart from other beings? What is their provenance and destiny? Can humans be properly studied through natural sciences, or is a special type of enquiry called for? Are disciplines such as humanities, psychology and cultural studies conceptually contiguous with natural sciences? These are some of the questions raised in the field of philosophical anthropology, and in the adjacent disciplines of philosophy of mind, culture and technology.
Philosophical Anthropology and Philosophy of Culture 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.
