Inhoud
In this course you will introduce yourself in philosophy, instead of being introduced. The aim is not that you learn interesting things about philosophy or philosophers, but that you start ‘doing philosophy’. The teachers provide necessary information and they ask questions to keep you on track. In short, they coach you. But, the real learning and teaching is done in your personal encounter with primary texts of Plato, Descartes, Kant, Wittgenstein and others, and in the philosophic dialogue about them with your fellow students and the teachers.

Leading questions in this first encounter with the best practices of great philosophers are: how to read a philosophical text? What ‘methods’ do philosophers propose? What, within different philosophical practices, are the roles of logic, criticism and argument, of creativity and imagination, of rhetoric and persuasion, of intuition and contemplation? What is the goal of philosophy, what is its scope, what are its limitations and … what’s the fun of it?
