The subject Philosophie/Ethik addresses fundamental questions of human thinking and actions on a scientific and systematic level. This particularly includes questions regarding the justification of moral norms, the foundation of moral judgement as well as the validity of social and political order. Furthermore, Philosophy examines the validity of knowledge acquisition, methods, principles, arguments and theories of any kind and any discipline.
To help students become good teachers is the aim of didactics. Students get to understand the larger framework of Philosophy and Ethics teaching and acquire fundamental teaching and communication skills. They apply and further train these skills during the Practical Semester that are an integral part of the programme.
