|Specialized Course in Theoretical Philosophy , 30 ECTS Credits|
|AIM OF THE COURSE|
|On completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- apply knowledge in the theorising and methods of theoretical philosophy and philosophy of science,
- independently in the form of an article, examine a chosen problem in one of the fields of theoretical philosophy or philosophy of science.
|Modern Analytical Philosophy, 9 HE credits
This module covers the modern history of analytical philosophy. All students are assigned the same reading list, which has a high degree of problematising and illustrates different ways to methodically approach the philosophic questions.
Individualised Literature Course, 6 HE credits
In this module, the students orient themselves in the field that constitutes background to the subject chosen for the subsequent thesis of the course. The students decide the individual literature for the course in consultation with the supervisor.
Thesis, 15 HE credits
The topic is chosen in consultation with the supervisor and should be well delimited to facilitate a thorough treatment in the form of an article. The thesis work should have a thesis statement based on argumentation. The thesis work should therefore show that the student has the ability to carry out a philosophical argument independently.
| The teaching mainly takes the form of writing and independent literature studies. In addition, there will be seminars both on the literature and the essays.
The thesis work is followed by the supervisor. The completed essay is defended at a seminar. To be student reviewer on a seminar thesis is a course requirement.
|The course is examined through written examination, oral examination and through the thesis, which is covered at a seminar, as well as through critical review on another student's thesis.
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.
For admission to the course, 30 HE credits approved from the basic course in Theoretical Philosophy is required, as well as at least 22.5 HE credits from the continuation course in Theoretical Philosophy, or the equivalent.
|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.
