About Us

Launched almost twenty years ago, our Department is specific for its emphasis on the links between philosophy and other domains of knowledge. A proper study of traditional philosophical problems, we believe, requires proficiency in logic, scholarship and acquaintance with insights from other disciplines in humanities, social and natural sciences. This defines the mission of our Department. All three levels of study - undergraduate (BA), graduate (MA) and postgraduate (PhD) - represent a mixture of the "analytic" approach characteristic of the leading Anglo-American universities and the "continental" approach distinctive of the Central European universities with their emphasis on the history of philosophy. In our view, the primary aim of university studies of philosophy is familiarity with a broad range of traditional philosophical problems, of the conceptual toolbox for understanding these problems and the world around us, as well as the acquisition of skills of argumentation, interpretation and critical analysis of beliefs, claims and theories from various areas of human knowledge. If you consider studying philosophy in Croatia, or visiting for educational or research purposes, please check out these pages for more information or contact us by email: FilozofijaHS@hrstud.hr

Language, Mind, and Knowledge
18th June – June 20th, 2014
Zagreb, Croatia

The international philosophical conference „Language, Mind, and Knowledge“ is intended to gather philosophers and other experts to discuss rich topics at the intersections of the philosophy of language, philosophy of mind and epistemology. It is expected that the participants give their talks concerning the hotly debated themes like semantic and epistemic contextualism, semantic externalism and externalism about mental content, internalism and externalism in epistemology, the role of intuitions in mathematics, sciences, and philosophy. However, the talks devoted to other related themes, deemed philosophically significant from the participants’ own perspectives and research interests, are welcome as well.
