Seminar "Intellectual Virtues and Vices"

Aufgrund der Buchungszahlen im FS 2020 kann das Seminar «Intellectual Virtues and Vices» von Dr. Nadja El Kassar ab sofort auch von Bachelorstudierenden besucht und absolviert werden (Modulgruppe «Theoretische Philosophie»).

Modulbeschrieb:

Recent years have seen a surge of interest in topics in virtue epistemology (cf. «The Routledge Handbook of Virtue Epistemology», 2019, Heather Battaly ed.). In this seminar we will study what virtue epistemologists say about intellectual virtues, such as open-mindedness, curiosity and intellectual humility, as well as intellectual vices, such as arrogance, prejudice and closed-mindedness. We will look at the historic background of intellectual virtues and vices, but we will also dive into contemporary discussions of virtues and vices.
