Summary

This specialist programme aims to provide you with a foundation in modern European philosophy from the late 18th century to the present day. It focuses on the European tradition (Leibniz, Hume, Ravaisson, Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche and Bergson) as well as 20th century and contemporary philosophers (Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Derrida, Foucault, Lyotard and Nancy), and on the major areas of contemporary philosophy such as phenomenology, post-structuralism and deconstruction.

The programme allows you to grasp the relations between philosophy and other disciplines such as aesthetics, art-theory, literary theory and political theory. The modules offered vary from year to year, but all draw on the research specialisms of members of the department.
