Issues in Contemporary Social and Political Philosophy (A851)
Building on the philosophy postgraduate foundation module, this module explores issues with a significance that extends far beyond the boundaries of academic philosophy. You'll look at distributive justice, liberalism versus communitarianism and the metaphysics of social explanation - and go on to examine citizenship, nationalism, punishment and democracy in the light of these themes. You'll develop your ability to analyse philosophical texts; reflect on the process of philosophical research; and hone your skills in finding and using material. You'll also be required to show greater independence of thought and the ability to put across a coherent case for a philosophical position.
