History of Ideas is the most all-round field of study at the university – at least if you believe our students.
History of ideas deals with questions about how people understand themselves and the world around them. What conceptions they have about history and the present times, and what hopes they hold for the future. Almost all of the thoughts and ideas that are around us have historical roots. You could call history of ideas the history of creativity, since it is concerned with all the ideas that have created our world, or at least our perception of it.
