|A Philosophical Classic - Plato , 7,5 ECTS Credits|
|AIM OF THE COURSE|
|On completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- account for the theories and arguments of an important classic philosopher
- present central parts of one or more works of the chosen philosopher, and demonstrate an insight into how the theories of the philosopher have been interpreted and received in more recent contexts.
|The course is focused on a philosopher who is classical in the sense of being a reference point for much subsequent philosophy. The classic that will be focused on changes each semester that the course is given. The choice is made from a selection of philosophers that have a broad relevance and highlights different parts of the fields of philosophy. Some of the philosophers that the course may focus on are Plato, Aristotle, Spinoza, Locke, Hume and Edge.|
|The teaching takes the form of lectures that in part are in seminar form by being designed as discussions of certain parts of original text (in Swedish or English translation). The students should also study independently.|
|The course is examined through a written review, either through an essay at the regular examination or through a written examination at the re-examination.
Students failing an exam covering either the entire course or part of the course two times are entitled to have a new examiner appointed for the reexamination.
Students who have passed an examination may not retake it in order to improve their grades.
|A grade of Pass with Credit, Pass or Fail is given for the course|
|Course certificate is issued by the Faculty Board on request. The Department provides a special form which should be submitted to the Student Affairs Division.|
|The course literature is decided upon by the department in question.|
|Planning and implementation of a course must take its starting point in the wording of the syllabus. The course evaluation included in each course must therefore take up the question how well the course agrees with the syllabus.
The course is carried out in such a way that both men´s and women´s experience and knowledge is made visible and developed.
