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.**Scottish Literature**By enhancing your unique literary and critical faculties, studying Scottish Literature prepares you to contribute to a society in which an understanding of texts of all kinds is crucially important. On this programme, you will explore the cultural contexts of all major periods of Scottish literature from the late Middle Ages to the present. You will also study research-led courses selected on the basis of your own interests, developing a detailed knowledge of specific topics, periods or genres. **Studying Philosophy and Scottish Literature together**This joint programme enables you to gain an in-depth knowledge in both subject areas, and the opportunity to specialise in the topics that interest you most.
