Programm APhil/HistAS

Ancient Philosophy/History of Ancient Science (APhil/HistAS)

Description

The program Ancient Philosophy and History of Ancient Science discusses the ancient sciences, their methods, their intellectual and philosophical foundations as well as their practical applications in their social and cultural contexts. The subject of research deals with scientific and philosophical tractates, but also scientific instruments and other forms of material evidence. Specific philological reading competences and methodical skills are central and necessary elements for the study of ancient sciences. The program is divided into two curriculum paths, which are selected before the beginning of the doctoral program: the path Ancient Philosophy and the path History of Ancient Science.
