studievereniging

Symposion
Symposion is the Study Association for all Philosophy students. Being a student is not only about reading books, attending lectures and writing essays. It is also important to get to know your fellow students who are dealing with the same academic theories. Symposion was established to enable students to reason and argue about such philosophical issues in an informal context. Symposion organises drinks, lectures and social or other philosophy related activities on a regular basis.
Symposion organiseert maandelijks borrels, lezingen en andere activiteiten. Deze vormen altijd een goede aansluiting op je studie en worden door studenten uit alle jaren bijgewoond. Op deze manier leer je zowel je jaargenoten als ouderejaarsstudenten kennen en haal je meer uit je studie.

Prof. Frans de Haas
Testimonial Prof. Frans de Haas

“Provocative philosophical claims rely on sound historical knowledge and vice versa.”

“I hold the chair of Ancient and Medieval Philosophy. In the master's in Philosophy, I teach Ancient Philosophy and its relation to mathematics and the sciences. It is characteristic of the study of philosophy in Leiden that historical and systematic aspects of philosophy are correlated with one another. Provocative philosophical claims rely on sound historical knowledge and vice versa...
This Greek philosopher wrote a standard work on true knowledge and how to acquire it. He established which demands science had to meet, and defined the structure of proofs. His model was the mathematical practice of his day, and it is likely that Aristotle, in turn, influenced Euclid when he was writing his Elements of Geometry.

In the Renaissance, there was a revival of interest in late antiquity in philosophers and scientists who studied Aristotle's texts anew. The scientific revolution in the 17th century cannot be understood without knowledge of the Aristotelian model of science. Even today, it is difficult to keep up with the number of works on Aristotle that are being published. It is a pleasure to work with students on these and related topics.”
