Philosophy is about understanding of the knowledge that we posses as rational, emotional and social creatures and the knowledge that is provided by science. How we engage with the world and create and

The Master in Philosophy at Erasmus University focuses on understanding the ontology of social phenomena, by studying the nature, origin and role of institutions like the market, morality, art, political authority and cyberspace.

The Master in Philosophy offers you to engage in the deepest insights of Western thought, to participate in global intellectual philosophical debates and to bridge differences between analytic and continental philosophy. Current social issues are always a common theme in the curriculum.

With Spinoza, Hegel and Lewis and many others as your intellectual sparring partners, in this programme you will complete you argumentative rigour and analytical skills.

Graduates are competent in self-reliant and independent philosophical analysis, in particular in social ontology. They are capable of articulating a research question and a related research proposal. They will be prepared for an ensuing research career in one of the faculty's specialities.

Philosophical Anthropology; Ethics; History of Philosophy; Philosophy of Science.
