I am studying single honours Philosophy, my dissertation is on the extent to which 20th Century advances in perceptual psychology undermine Quine’s philosophical views on reference and translation. The program at Durham provides thorough training across a range of philosophical domains. For my particular interests, the department’s world-leading teaching and research into the philosophy of science is particularly important and I am grateful that I am able to develop skills in this area to take into my postgraduate study. Tutorials at Durham provide ample and necessary opportunities to discuss one’s own opinions on the relevant philosophical issues in each module. The undergraduate philosophy society is also an excellent way to do this in more cordial environments, and the undergraduate journal Critique, which I am editor of for the academic year of 2016/17, is an excellent way to share one’s exciting and innovative work.
