Course content

This specialist programme aims to provide you with a foundation in Modern European Philosophy from the late 18th Century to the present day, focussing on the European tradition (Leibniz, Hume, Ravaisson, Kant, Hegel and Nietzsche) as well as 20th Century and contemporary philosophers (Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Derrida, Foucault, Lyotard and Nancy), and on the major areas of contemporary philosophy such as phenomenology, post-structuralism and deconstruction. The programme allows you to grasp the relations between philosophy and other disciplines such as aesthetics, art-theory, literary theory and political theory. The modules offered vary from year to year, but all draw on the research specialisms of members of the department.

The course is available to distance learning students via the internet. You can participate in the programme through an international forum following the same units as you would if attending in person. Teaching and learning is tailored for distance-learning students and includes online discussion groups and tutorials.
