Course summary

Develop your critical abilities within two vibrant departments of like-minded students and scholars and gain a strong understanding of how History and Philosophy intersect and influence one another. History's core first year module is designed to extend and deepen your knowledge of the past and introduce you to major historical topics and themes from the ancient world to the present day. You will gain insights into how historians conduct research and interpret the past and develop your own research, essay-writing and presentational skills. The first year philosophy module Introduction to Philosophy' introduces students to key themes in the study of philosophy. Consciously drawing on a broad range of philosophical traditions -- Continental, Analytic, and non-Western -- it aims to present a comprehensive overview of various theoretical sub-disciplines within philosophy, but also to equip students with the ability to reason and think clearly about the most fundamental questions of human existence. The course, though designed as an introduction to the advanced degree-level study of philosophy, will also function as a self-standing introduction to philosophy suitable for those seeking to broaden their understanding of philosophy as it has been practised throughout various traditions. In the second and third years you will be able to choose from a broad range of philosophy modules, including for example: Continental Philosophy; Logic and Language; Aesthetics; Moral Philosophy. For more modules please see the PPR department website. History modules in the second and third years include British, European, American, Asian and Middle Eastern history, from the eighth century BC to the twentieth century.
