Students follow a part of their master’s programme at the Faculty of Science. The remaining parts of the programme, the courses in Philosophy and the specialist courses in Philosophy of Science, are characterised by a firm integration of historical and systematic approaches in philosophy and an emphasis on studying primary philosophical texts. This gives students familiarity with both historical scholarship and current philosophical debates.
The Leiden Institute for Philosophy offers a combination of continental and analytical philosophy, which is an attractive feature for students searching for a confrontation of different types of philosophical method. The specialist courses in Philosophy of Science can in some instances be adapted to the student’s personal interests and may be offered as a series of individual tutorial sessions.
