Course content

Philosophy of Humanity and Culture

In Philosophy of Humanity and Culture we go into the topics dealt with in classics from the European tradition. Topics we will be discussing include the difference between ‘nature and ‘culture’, ‘humans’ and ‘animals’, ‘being’ and ‘appearing’, ‘Enlightenment’ and ‘Romanticism’. In this, we put particular emphasis on the importance for our identity of history, religion, art, language and psychology. We also pay attention to the role of memory, gender, the relationship between literature, film and philosophy, war, art and remembrance, and that between religion and secularization. Together, these all contribute to our understanding of human existence, culture and society.

In modern times, from the seventeenth century onwards, widely differing answers have been given to the questions raised in classic works. Answers that resonate in present-day philosophical, scientific, religious and political debates. As a philosopher, you are not easily satisfied with answers given. That is why in the Philosophy of Humanity and Culture Master’s program you learn to continuously ask relevant questions, and what these questions entail. In addition to clear observation, reasoning, and speaking and writing, you learn to critically scrutinize humans and human society through various philosophical approaches. That way you position yourself firmly at the heart of life and society.
