Course Description

Course Profile

During the three–year length of First Cycle Studies (BA Programme), WISIP students will obtain a thorough grounding in the current state of research in the various philosophical disciplines. They will also be familiarised with the main historical traditions within European philosophy — with particular attention to analytical philosophy and the Lvov–Warsaw School. The basis for a philosophical education, according to the traditions of that school, lies in ontology and epistemology. Courses in these disciplines provide a broad overview of the world: deeper and more general than that provided by the sciences. Supplemented by courses in the history of philosophy, they make it possible to understand the relations between a manner of living, the dominant intellectual culture and the goals of social elites in various times and societies. Courses in ethics and aesthetics develop an emotional and moral sensitivity. They cultivate respect for civic responsibilities and show the interrelations between the normative systems — laws, morality and religions — that describe social interactions. Courses in logic and logical semiotics (disciplines in which the work of Polish philosophers has had a world–wide impact) teach thinking skills — significant both within science and public life. They also provide the tools to formally analyse natural language and the structure of scientific theories. Specialist and interdisciplinary courses give students the opportunity to familiarise themselves with issues in such fields as the philosophy and history of science, philosophy of culture, philosophy of politics, philosophy of language, philosophy of mind, social and legal philosophy. The broadening of students’ intellectual horizons is promoted by a varied programme of lectures, tutorials and seminars. During lectures, the students are provided with knowledge of the subject, while during the tutorials and other classes they also learn how to analyse basic philosophical ideas as well as how to individually formulate and deal with the theoretical problems that arise. Studies ends with preparing Bachelor’s Dissertation and passing the Bachelor’s Exam.
