Emotion and value I

Most of us aspire to live meaningful lives. Yet, many of us would struggle to explain what a meaningful life is. This course provides philosophical tools and frameworks useful to understand our aspiration for meaning.

Emotion and value II

In this Master's Project seminar, students prepare a high-quality article embodying the philosophical ideals of clarity, concision, and truth. They do so both in groups and individually. Students also defend the claim made in their article by delivering a professional talk.
