Content

From the 20th century history of philosophy, I pick out Bergson’s philosophy (reason versus intuition and physical time versus psychological time), logical positivism (verification rule and metaphysical reduction), phenomenology (Husserl – the last one struggle for certainty, Heidegger and hermeneutic), analytic split (from strict linguistic analyses to wider recognition in 90s of 20th century), existentialism and dialog philosophy and of course postmodern philosophy. The lecture will also cover the issues of philosophy of science (K. Popper, I. Lakatos, T. Kuhn).
