The Department of Philosophy at KTMU first started classes in Kyrgyz in the 2008-2009 academic year. An education in philosophy requires learning about the world and mankind's place in it. This requires three different tasks: representing a world view of the foundations of growth; justifying the methodology of knowledge; and reflecting the social view of existence. In the context of globalization as a global growth trend, philosophy, as the quintessential of thoughts of the epoch, allows us not only to form a world view, but to understand the specifics of the modern world and to define a direction of growth for the future. At the Department of Philosophy, students study not only the history of world philosophy (with emphasis on Turkic philosophy), but also the theoretical blocks of philosophy as a discipline and special fields of philosophical knowledge. Additionally, theoretical ideas are closely related with practical work, which allows our students to combine theory with existing socio-cultural situations. In addition to Turkish and Kyrgyz, students also Russian and English.
The goal of the Department of Philosophy is to prepare qualified specialists. Thus, special attention is paid to the following areas:
