Metaphysics deals with basic philosophical questions such as: What is being? What is truth? What is the essence of something? Is reality one or many? In Nijmegen, the Department of Metaphysics and Epistemology focuses mainly on the question of how these metaphysical questions are affected by hermeneutical philosophy as it has been developed in the 19th and 20th century. In particular, this impact is examined in discussion with the work of philosophers such as Schleiermacher, Dilthey, Husserl, Heidegger, Gadamer, Ricoeur and Derrida.

‘It can be very difficult to find a Philosophy Master’s in English on the continent. Radboud University not only offers a Research Master’s in Philosophy, but thanks to the wide range of specialisations I found a programme that really suited my interests. The programme really is challenging. Teachers expect quite a lot from you. They give you free range to find a research topic, which is great but also daunting. They do give plenty of guidance, though. “You’re interested in this? Well, have a look at this, and this, and this research.” I loved going away with lots to read that inspired me to form my own ideas.’
