    The aim of the philosophy track is to introduce students to the history of philosophy, from ancient Greek thought, through seventeenth- and eighteenth-century debates between rationalism and empiricism, and up to modern and post-modern thought. The track further offers an introduction to moral and political philosophy (exploring such issues as freedom, justifications of moral decisions, and different philosophical approaches to the political sphere) as well as an introduction to contemporary theory of mind (investigating notion of the self, body-mind relation, and consciousness). In their second and third years, students explore in depth specific philosophical questions, both classical and contemporary, in analytical and continental philosophy. The philosophy track emphasizes the development of rigorous critical skills, offering special classes where students study in small groups and focus on guided reading and writing about philosophical texts.
