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.
