Course content

Unlike most other UK Philosophy departments, we offer supervision across a wide range of topics and traditions, including both Anglo-American analytic and post-Kantian continental philosophy.

AREAS OF STUDY

You’ll work with academics who are experts at the forefront of their subjects. Our research expertise includes:

  • the thought of important figures such as Aristotle, Plato, Kant, Hegel, Husserl, Heidegger, Levinas, Wittgenstein, Habermas, Frege, David Lewis, John Rawls and Tyler Burge
  • mind, language, epistemology and logic
  • aesthetics, including the philosophy of fiction and literature
  • phenomenology and existentialism
  • political philosophy.

We have reviewed all our courses to ensure the best possible learning experience for September, taking account of latest information and advice in relation to COVID-19. For updates on changes that may affect contact time, assessments, fieldwork and study abroad, check Course changes for 2020-2021. These changes are not yet reflected in our prospectus information and, of course, may be revised as the situation evolves.
