Philosophy in the analytic tradition

The VU Masters programme in Philosophy is unique in offering tracks of study covering analytic and continental styles of philosophy. The track Philosophy in the analytic tradition includes many courses and specialised tutorial options. 


With courses taught by world renowned academics in decision theory, philosophy of science, and ethics, the VU department of philosophy is an ideal place to study analytic philosophy. The analytic track provides students not only with courses covering the core contemporary areas of philosophy of language, epistemology, and metaphysics, but also a historical background that outlines the development and emergence of analytic philosophy. Students are invited to contribute to this tradition through the production of the MA thesis.
