Philosophy of mind and cognition touches on some of the most profound questions about ourselves: What does it mean to have a mind? How is the brain related to the mind? What is consciousness? How can our mental states drive our actions? Do we have free will?
Traditionally, philosophy of mind is part of the analytical method in philosophy. Recently, however, a more phenomenological approach to typical questions in the philosophy of mind has provided a refreshing new look on old topics. Additionally, the advance of cognitive neuroscience is providing a new method to address old questions. Philosophy of Mind and Cognition in Nijmegen combines traditional analytical theorizing with insights from phenomenology and the empirical sciences.

‘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.’
