Course summary

The Philosophy and Literature PhD is a leading course, suiting students who thrive on independent, interdisciplinary study. You will explore a topic in depth as part of an active research community, supervised by experts. Study Philosophy with English or Modern Languages.

Course Overview

The Warwick PhD in Philosophy and Literature is aimed at outstanding students who wish to pursue advanced research ultimately to become professional researchers in, and teachers of, philosophy. The Philosophy and Literature degree is for candidates whose research projects combine philosophical and literary concerns. The combination can be achieved in a number of ways, as aspects of literature can be treated as topics of philosophical inquiry, or a more combined and interdisciplinary approach can be taken.

While many UK philosophy departments possess strength in analytic philosophy or continental philosophy, we are distinctive in having world-leading philosophers from both fields. We also collaborate extensively with academics and practitioners in other subjects including English and other modern European languages.

Research Themes

Areas for PhD supervision

The department has particular research strengths in Philosophy of Mind and Psychology, Epistemology, The Philosophy of Art and Literature, Moral and Political Philosophy, 20th Century Continental Philosophy, and Kant and 19th Century Post-Kantian Philosophy.

Teaching and Learning

In addition to regular supervisions, in the first year you will also take our core PhD seminar, which engages you with a broad range of philosophical issues beyond your thesis topic that are central to different philosophical traditions.
