drukuj sylabus



Wymagania wstępne

In the academic seminar can participate students who have some basic knowledge in history of philosophy. Because of the language, a student must be able to speak English at, at least, intermediate level.


The main aim of the course is to make students interested in Russian and Byzantine philosophy which was created in the context of the Eastern Christian tradition. Such thinkers as Vladimir Solovyov, Pavel Florensky, Nikolai Berdyaev and others proposed an original manner of philosophising which, on the one hand, refers to the Western European thought and, on the other, to the Byzantine-Russian Orthodoxy. The main aim is to instruct and guide the diploma works of the student.
