Course summary

This joint honours degree addresses fundamental questions about how we come to understand the world around us.What is reality? How can we know about it – and how do we know that we have such knowledge in the first place? Can we trust what scientists say, and is science ever truly objective? On this course you’ll engage with questions that have shaped the modern world.As well as fundamental questions about knowledge, language, reality and moral and political life, you’ll learn about how scientific theories and methods have developed over the years and the roles that science, technology and medicine play in society today.Core modules introduce you to key approaches, thinkers and methods in each subject. You’ll learn to construct and defend effective arguments and think about the nature of scientific evidence and ideas. You’ll also expand your knowledge through a wide range of optional modules on topics like philosophy of biology, the relation between science and religion, metaphysics and aesthetics.
