    Before choosing the courses read carefully the following notes:

    You can include the courses from the list below into your LAS for the summer semester 2017/18.

    The list is in alphabetic order consult the whole list before taking decision.

    All courses are prepared by professors of the Department of Philosophy University of d (Poland).

    The courses are usually in English, but you can find also some courses in other languages (German, Spanish and Russian).

    The list does not comprise schedules of classes. In order to fix the schedule contact directly the lecturers (the e-mails are included).

    There are two forms of the courses: regular seminars for at least three students and tutorials for one or two students (more flexible form of

    classes). In both cases students receive the same number of ECTS points

    (6).

    Philosophy (www.filozof.uni.lodz.pl).

    webpage of the Institute of Philosophy in June 2017.

    If there are any changes in the list below the information will be available as soon as possible on the webpage of the Department of Philosophy. In

    this case there will be no problem to change the LAS.
