3. Course contents *

This course has a close connection to the course Historical Overview of Philosophy: Modern and Contemporary Philosophy (Ba1), but it can be followed independently. Through close reading and analysis of an primary source text insight will be gained in some crucial issues that were on the agenda of modern philosophy (1600-1800).

This academic year Hobbes' Leviathan will be read and analysed.
