Generell informasjon

Exphil is divided into two parts of 5 ECTS each:
 
Part 1: History of philosophy and science (5 ECTS)
In part 1 the students work with important thinkers and traditions in the history of philosophy. The scope will be multicultural including major thinkers from European, Asian and African traditions. A good number original texts are read together with secondary literature. The course is oriented around selected problems, and invites the students to reflect on these.
 
Part 2: Ethics (5 ECTS)
In part 2 students mainly work systematically with ethical problems. Important ethical theories are to be used to discuss concrete problems. Meta-ethics is also included to give perspective to discussion on ethics and morality. The scope will be multicultural including major thinkers from European, Asian and African traditions.

Overlappende emner

EX1011: Examen philosophicum overlaps completely with EX1010: Examen philosophicum. Students who have already completed EX1010 will receive 0 credit points (ECTS) for EX1011 on their transcript of records or diploma. MF therefore recommends not to combine these courses.

Studiekrav

In order to receive a final assessment, the student must:
  • Submit a book report (1000 words) on a chapter from World Philosophies: An Historical Introduction
  • Attend at least 60% of the lectures
  • Participate in the electronic evaluation of the course if such evaluation is stipulated in the relevant term.
 
In order to receive a final assessment, the student must fulfill the course requirements within the fixed deadline.
When course requirements are not fulfilled, this will count as one examination attempt, unless the student withdraws before the set deadline (1 May/November).

Avsluttende vurdering

The final assessment for this course is based on a written exam (4 hours). The course and final exam will be graded A-F.
