Description

Philosophy studies nature and meaning of the universe and human life. Philosophers try to answer some of the fundamental human questions about art, free will, morality, time and space, truth and the relationship between the brain and the physical world.

Philosophy is aimed at cultivating clear and critical thinking on issues of fundamental importance and to develop an attitude of inquiry. Every first-year student must pass the introduction to philosophy as a general course which is very interesting.
