Philosophy

This course enables the student to gain an in depth knowledge of the historical and applied scope of philosophy. Students study a broad number of issues and themes in contemporary philosophy and receive a complete grounding in the central intellectual traditions which underpin 20th and 21st century philosophy; the taught modules introduce the student to the key problems and thinkers who have set the tone of contemporary philosophy. Specific emphasis is given to problems and issues in the philosophy of language, aesthetics, metaphysics, and phenomenology, post structuralism and social and political philosophy. Students study the work of Wittgenstein, Husserl, Heidegger, Foucault, Deleuze and Derrida; the overall aim of the course is to provide a cutting edge philosophical background for graduate philosophers and to enhance the level of understanding of the ideas, contexts and techniques required to philosophise in both academic and non academic contexts.
