Philosophy & Psychoanalysis Department


Masters Degree

Psychoanalysis is a revolution of human thought. It appeared as a turn of philosophical and scientific perspective inside of the human mind to the study of hidden internal mechanisms of it. By this it became the basis for today's most advanced scientific and philosophical theories and trends that engaged in exploration of the inner world of human.

Psychoanalysis revealed that behind every obvious matter that concerns human mind there is still some undiscovered mechanisms. It is well known that Freud “discovered” one of the most fundamental concepts of psychoanalysis: the unconscious, however psychoanalysis is not at all a theory in the sense of a collection of  existing knowledge. First of all it is the awareness that there is always something else, another yet unknown mechanism of human mind. In this sense psychoanalysis is an inexhaustible prospect of research and through this it is a revolutionary practice as revolution is essentially opposite course to cessation of cognition.


By constant deepening of our self-knowledge and learning of our inner capacities we gain the ability to transform our patterns of behavior, and thus the world in which we live.
