Philosophy, Science and Digital Culture
"Philosophy, Science and Digital Culture" is an intensive study program for a non-thesis M.A. degree at the Cohn Institute for the History and Philosophy of Sciences and Ideas. The program offers a comprehensive ensemble of multi and interdisciplinary courses, integrating various methods of thinking and understanding, connecting between the past and the future, and expanding students’ horizon of thought beyond the familiar and obvious, especially regarding the ties between technology, communication, politics, economics, and art.
Our curriculum combines both ancient and modern philosophy with contemporary digital discourse. We expose our students to various analytical strategies and interpretational models which they can employ to critically scrutinize and assess technological innovations, cultural developments, and futuristic ideas. We are one of the first programs in the world and the only one in Israel which explores these relations between digital technologies, their cultural implications and philosophical analysis.
This track is primarily intended for high level professionals and executives in media and communication, high-tech, science, education, economics, public service, marketing, and advertising. Suitable candidates must meet the admission requirements.
Studies in this track extend over one year or three semesters (fall, spring, and summer) and take place on Thursdays and Fridays only.
Graduates acquire a master's degree in the History and Philosophy of Science and Ideas, and may write a thesis subsequently, under the supervision of the Cohn Institute.
