Philosophy

The Department of Philosophy is one of the best in the UK. With a reputation for high-quality research across the subject, we are particularly well known for our strength in logic and the philosophy of science and mathematics, as well as expertise in applied ethics, formal epistemology, phenomenology and the philosophy of medicine.

We have an active postgraduate community and internationally renowned staff who set the agenda and break new ground in their respective fields. Teaching and supervision are informed by the latest research and we are proud of the contributions made by our postgraduates to the department's vibrant research culture. We have an exciting seminar/colloquium and conference programme, including regular seminars in philosophy and history of science, medicine, mathematics and logic, as well as weekly departmental seminars with visiting speakers, and joint sessions run with the Departments of Physics, Mathematics, English, History, Medicine, Psychology and Politics. We also host the Centre for Science and Philosophy, which promotes the interpretation of science through collaboration with other disciplines.
