What is the Syllabus?

Syllabus means register, index, enumeration, excerpt, summary. In the university context, the term syllabus is used to refer to the overview of a course, event or study module. In addition to a brief description of the course, it primarily contains a bibliography of material to be studied for the course, usually broken down into the individual units or dates. In addition, it may contain notes on learning objectives, methods, didactics, etc. In legal terminology, the term syllabus is also used as a synonym for “statement of facts,” which is the summary statement of a case that precedes a judicial or administrative decision. It contains a description of the facts of the case with facts and positions of the parties involved.

Here it is simply a collection of interesting texts from my point of view, as it were (my)a private reading list.
