World-makers: Research-based master course

Dana Jalobeanu (

This is a research-based, interdisciplinary master course designed for the first year master students at CESI (Research Center for the Study of the Imaginary, University of Bucharest). Its purpose is to read and discuss primary texts and to teach the students the basic skills of philosophical translation.

The course will use a textbook I have co-edited with Doina Cristina Rusu, as part of our project “From Natural History to Science: The Emergence of Experimental Philosophy” shortly to appear in print (at the University of Bucharest Press). This textbook will provide the students support and a model for their assignments.
