Course summary

Unlike most other UK Philosophy departments, we offer supervision across a wide range of topics and traditions, including both Anglo-American analytic and post-Kantian continental philosophy.

AREAS OF STUDY

You’ll work with academics who are experts at the forefront of their subjects. Our research expertise includes:

  • the thought of important figures such as Aristotle, Plato, Kant, Hegel, Husserl, Heidegger, Levinas, Wittgenstein, Habermas, Frege, David Lewis, John Rawls and Tyler Burge
  • mind, language, epistemology and logic
  • aesthetics, including the philosophy of fiction and literature
  • phenomenology and existentialism
  • political philosophy.

For an MPhil, your work is an independent piece of research but in less depth than for a PhD. You’ll graduate with the degree title Master of Philosophy. You might be able to change to a PhD while you study for an MPhil.
