Course summary

Overview

Pursue innovative research with experts working at the cutting-edge of their fields. Staff specialisms cover most traditional areas of Philosophy, including analytic, continental and empirical approaches and an exciting range of growing sub specialties. We have particular strengths in ethics, epistemology, philosophy of mind and the intersections between these. Our research in moral philosophy covers normative ethics, metaethics, and applied ethics. Many of our staff have overlapping expertise in normative theory, practical reason, moral psychology and social-political philosophy, with our work in applied ethics including research on health, biobanking, nutrigenomics and sport. Research in philosophy of mind and psychology has grown to include interdisciplinary publications on perception and the science of consciousness. We have expanded our concentration of expertise in epistemology, with several staff working on social epistemology and epistemic normativity alongside the field’s long-established topics. We likewise have research expertise on many key figures from the history of philosophy, including Nietzsche and Wittgenstein, as well as a range of philosophers central to the more recent analytic and continental traditions. Indeed, much of our research lies at the intersection of these traditions, drawing upon the insights of each.
