Philosophy and History of Science

Study programme at Faculty of Science |
🇨🇿 PhD.


Graduates will have acquired good general knowledge of the contemporary discussion in the philosophy of science and the history of – primarily European – thought and science. Aside from philosophy, they will also gain insight into the methodology of science and should be able to apply this knowledge to specific cases.

They should be able to analyze a wide range of problems, including new and non-obvious challenges. They should be capable of identifying possible difficulties of scientific research from an “external” perspective.

It is naturally also expected that graduates will be able to present their results both in technical and popular context. In addition to independent research, they can also enrich interdisciplinary research teams with a more general philosophical outlook.
