Course summary

**Philosophy**Philosophy has been at the core of Western intellectual life for at least 2,500 years. It is central to our understanding of the world and of our place in and interaction with it. Philosophy provides the tools by which the presuppositions of all areas of intellectual and practical activity may be systematically and critically examined. While there are different approaches that philosophers have taken, characteristic of philosophy is the emphasis on the use of:* argument* critical enquiry* rigour in reasoning* clarity of expression, including the making of pertinent distinctions**Philosophy at Edinburgh**The University has a strong historic connection to the subject, counting Adam Ferguson and Sir William Hamilton among its former students. Edinburgh has one of the UK' s largest philosophy departments and the Philosophy Society attracts high-profile speakers. Our programme is structured in such a way that you will cover the basics of Western philosophy and have the opportunity to specialise in the areas of most interest. **Economics**Economics is the study of:* the incentives that shape and reconcile the decisions that individuals, businesses, governments and societies make, and * the macroeconomic outcomes such as economic fluctuations, growth, unemployment and crises, which may arise from those decisions. **Studying Philosophy and Economics together** Studying philosophy and economics will equip you with the key skills to engage with the philosophical and economic debates of the day. You will acquire the necessary frameworks for thinking about philosophical issues, combined with the quantitative skills for answering economic questions.
