About

The aim of the course is to demonstrate the diversity of the range of problems addressed by philosophy, their topicality, and the most significant approaches to their solution. The specificity of philosophical knowledge combines concreteness in posing questions about the Universe and about the most important issues of everyday life. Our experts will present original interpretations of specific philosophical issues and characterize topical approaches to the search for answers to perennial questions by modern authors. The suggested tests and questions will not only help students to comprehend and systematize the material presented, but also inspire their own philosophical research, as well as productive feedback from teachers and each other.
