Aims: This Doctoral Program aims to fulfil the tasks and missions established by Royal Decree 99/2011, 28 January, by which doctoral studies in the current Spanish university system are regulated. Its main objective is thus complete the degrees of the study of philosophy, offering to students interested in developing research tasks regulated, a recognition and adequate institutional and academic platform including professors and media that allow their integration into research groups. The doctoral studies will guarantee, as a minimum, the acquisition by doctoral students of the basic competencies listed under the Spanish Qualifications Framework for Higher Education (MECES), namely: systematic understanding of a field of study of legal sciences, and mastery of its skills and methods of research; ability to conceive, design or create, implement and adapt a substantial process of research and creation; ability to make a critical and assessment analysis, and synthesis of new and complex ideas, as well as communication with the academic and scientific community and society in general about their fields of knowledge; and and ability to promote, within academic and professional contexts, scientific, technological, social, artistic or cultural advance in a knowledge-based society.

Description: Departments proposed by the Doctoral Programme (Philosophy, Metaphysics and Theory of Knowledge, Logics and Philosophy of Science, of the Universitat de València) accumulate a whole integrity of the thematic areas that constitute the theoretical philosophy, along with its essential logic-methodical and historical perspectives: the entire history of philosophy, philosophical anthropology, logic, philosophy of science, language, art, and religion; Theory of knowledge, ontology, metaphysics, philosophy of mind and aesthetics. The inter-thematic and methodically systematized treatment of the axis of this plot is essential in regards to the basic philosophical training. This task must recognize in those Departments of the University of Valencia (only entity which issues the certificate of Philosophy in the context of its 5 public or state universities) that request the reference of philosophical specialized theoretical training.
