Master in Philosophy (part-time)

The current master programme is structured around two tracks ‘Continental Philosophy and its History’ (CPH) and ‘Philosophy and Economics’ (PE). 

As of September 2020, ESPhil intends to offer a renewed Master programme under the title Philosophy Now. Based on the existing two tracks, the new programme will offer four clusters of courses, each of which is centred around a specific area of current societal challenges:

  • Subjectivity and Culture;
  • Politics of Wealth;
  • Ecology and Technology;
  • Democracy and Truth.

With its four themes, the programme will combine topicality and coherence with a maximum freedom of choice for students. It will also offer a diversity of perspectives and enable students to focus on analytical and continental traditions, or a combination of both.

The Rotterdam Master Philosophy Now is currently still under construction. Below you will find the two-track master programme as it is currently programmed and on which the new programme will be based.
