Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Right from the beginning European Philosophy is establishing itself as the question of fundamental groundwork. Through Parmenides and Heraclitus, it is already reaching a considerable methodical level wich will be discussed in the seminar by textanalysis of these philosophers. The better we understand the solutions offered by Parmenides and Heraclitus, the clearer we should recognize them as philosophical problems worth dealing with even today.
