Philosophy deals with fundamental questions of reality, the world, life as well as acting and knowing. The history of philosophy is therefore the history of human thought, which poses philosophical questions and is constantly working on their solutions. It is not for nothing that philosophy is called "fundamental science".

The first step in the course is to awaken an understanding of the classic problems and issues of philosophy. To this end, knowledge of the most important historical positions and epochs in the history of philosophy as well as the handling of the working methods of philosophy in systematic and historical terms are conveyed. In addition to the general history of philosophy - from the philosophy of antiquity and the Middle Ages, modern times and German idealism to the latest contemporary philosophy - sub-areas such as philosophy of religion, aesthetics, philosophy of spirit and modern philosophy of science and nature or modern logic also play a role . In addition, there are also highly topical areas of application of philosophy, such as bioethics.
