    The goal The course comprises the second part of the very significant epoch in the history of philosophy, which is usually marked as the Classical German Philosophy or German Idealism. It includes philosophical doctrines of Schelling and Hegel, with the addition of the thematic section which comprises one of the major philosophical reactions to Hegel’s philosophy (Marx’s philosophy). This course should enable a profound philosophical inquiry of the complex thought and conceptual-categorical nexuses, a formation of the ability for a synthesis of the previously acquired philosophical knowledge and insights, as well as the understanding of the basic streams of the modern philosophy.
    The outcome Acquiring knowledge of the basic thematic content of Schelling's and Hegel's philosophy.
