Full description:


The course has two main goals. (1) To survey some of the central points in the history of Croatian philosophy, with special emphasis on the works of Herman of Carinthia (12th century), Matthias Flacius Illyricus (1520–1575), Franciscus Patricius (1529–1597), and Roger Boscovich (1711–1787). (2) To introduce students into main trends in Croatian philosophy in 20th and 21st centuries. We will situate the history of Croatian philosophy in the wider cultural, scientific and political context of Central and Eastern Europe, and, in particular, consider its position and role in the political and economic turn at the end of the 20th century. Finally, we will discuss the future prospects of Croatian philosophy.


The main goal of classes is to introduce students into the work of Roger Boscovich. We will combine a more thorough study of some passages from his works with the discussion of the wider context and influence of his ideas. The emphasis will be on the philosophical aspect of his work. We will appreciate his contribution to some traditional issues and discuss their philosophical relevance.
