Chinese Philosophy

Study Cycle: 1




ECTS credit:3

Lecturer(s): prof. dr. Rošker Jana


The contents include the introduction of all influential philosophical schools of the Chinese tradition and the theoretical development visible from the works of their most important representatives, as well as the mastering of the methodological specifics of the Chinese philosophical thought. In this context, the focus is on the understanding of the concepts of immanent transcendence, the principle of complementarity, the structural connection of nature and society, and the transition from the holistic thought to the germs of dualistic thought. The contents are being transmitted through the lens of the specific features of classical Chinese ethics and its connections with the culture and society. The contents also include those elements of the classical Chinese thought that have – due to specific economic and political circumstances of traditional China - not prevailed as central methodological or ideological discourses. In this context, the subject is mainly dealing with proto-scientific methodologies and traditional Chinese logic.
