Studying philosophy enables us to explore the ‘big’ questions about who we are, and how we understand ourselves and our world. Our department offers a space to explore these questions in an inclusive community of broad expertise and diverse perspectives – where we celebrate our diversity as a strength and a gift.
Our thriving research culture
Our research culture revolves around a cluster of themed research groups, made up of lecturers, researchers, and post-grads who meet regularly in the department (and the Dun Cow pub). We discuss each other's work, host visiting speakers, participate in reading groups, workshops and seminars.
