Master’s (12 to 31 months) and Doctorate (24 to 61 months)

The guiding principal of the program is that specialization in the canonical areas of the history of philosophy should be combined with interdisciplinary and even transdisciplinary lines of research. This academic profile is what ensures that the production generated by the program is both diversified and of high quality. Having developed since it was established in 1977, the program currently includes the following lines of research:

  • I) History of philosophy, divided into its four canonical periods (Ancient, Medieval, Modern and Contemporary);
  • II) Logic;
  • III) Theory of knowledge and philosophy of science and language; and
  • IV) Political-ethical thought.

With this profile, the programs covers (in addition to the core subject, history of philosophy) different fields of modern logic as they relate to new scientific disciplines.

The program also addresses classical issues in the theory of knowledge and includes philosophical, methodological and historical reflections on different sciences and philosophy of language. In the field of political-ethical thought, emphasis is placed on problems of practical philosophy arising from the lines previously mentioned or from research into modern political philosophy, transcendental philosophy, the legacy of Marxism, the critique of political economy and dialectic thought.
