Master of Arts in ANALYTIC PHILOSOPHY

[twocol_one]

This is a two-year research master programme aiming to provide students with various useful skills and insights needed to do independent intellectual work in philosophy at postgraduate level. Some of our students want to acquire these skills and insights as preparation for a PhD track, some plan to use them in another area of intellectual enterprise, and some are just curious and want to know what postgraduate studies in philosophy are like. But all of them are invited to participate in a lively research environment in which students are encouraged to interact with some of the best scholars in this field.
Generally, due to its focus on clear thought, cogent argumentation and elaborated criticism of philosophical accounts, Analytic Philosophy has proven to be an extremely useful instrument in the philosophical professional training. Our program fosters various valuable skills such as critical articulated thinking, accurate identification of the main tenets of a debate, minute analysis of the issues discussed, elaborated argumentation in favour of a point of view, and the rapid detection of fallacious arguments. Thus, students who do not wish to pursue an academic career in philosophy may still find many opportunities to apply later these skills in public institutions or companies where clear analytical thinking is a valuable asset.
