Philosophy of Being, Cognition, and Value (PBCV) is a specialization within the Philosophy faculty in the Institute of Philosophy at the University of Warsaw. It began in October 2007 as a 3-year tier I bachelors degree. In academic year 2010/2011 starts a 2-year tier II masters degree. All tutorials, lectures and exams take place in English. The teaching staff are young, well prepared and have a wealth of teaching experience both within Poland and in other countries.


During the three-year length of First Cycle Studies (BA Programme), PBCV students will obtain a thorough grounding in the current state of research in the various philosophical disciplines. They will also be familiarised with the main historical traditions within European philosophy - with particular attention to analytical philosophy and the Lvov-Warsaw School. The basis for a philosophical education, according to the traditions of that school, lies in ontology and epistemology. Courses in these disciplines provide a broad overview of the world: deeper and more complete than that provided by the sciences. Supplemented by courses in the history of philosophy, they make it possible to understand the relations between a manner of living, the dominant intellectual culture and the goals of social elites in various times and societies. Courses in ethics and aesthetics develop an emotional and moral sensitivity. They cultivate respect for civic responsibilities and show the interrelations between the normative systems - laws, morality and religions - that describe social interactions. Courses in logic and logical semiotics (disciplines in which the work of Polish philosophers has had a world-wide impact) teach thinking skills - significant both within science and public life. They also provide the tools to formally analyse natural language and the structure of scientific theories. Specialist and interdisciplinary courses give students the opportunity to familiarise themselves with issues in such fields as the philosophy and history of science, philosophy of culture, philosophy of politics and social philosophy.


The broadening of students' intellectual horizons is favoured by a varied programme of lectures, tutorials and seminars. During lectures, the students are provided with knowledge of the subject, while during the tutorials and other classes they learn to analyse basic philosophical ideas as well as individually formulating and dealing with the theoretical problems that arise.



Within the Second Cycle philosophy studies every student defines individual program of studies by choosing among seminars, proseminars, monographic lectures and elective courses taught in the Institute of Philosophy. The elective courses offer includes: Philosophy of Culture, Philosophy of Science, Philosophy of Politics, Social Philosophy, History of Polish Philosophy, Aesthetics, Logical Semiotics and/or Advanced Logic. Studies end with preparing Master's Dissertation and passing the Master's Exam.
