Philosophy (MLitt)

This programme provides an understanding of the roles of creativity and imagination in artistic, social and cultural contexts. Students are encouraged to think critically about the ways in which creativity and imagination have been neglected concepts and how they are immensely relevant today in understanding our historical situation. It mainly focuses on continental philosophy, with particular emphasis, for example, on Deleuze, Foucault, Gadamer, Heidegger, Nietzsche, Ricoeur and Sartre. Topics of study include faculties of imagination, idleness and leisure, the image, phenomenology of the imagination, the origin of art, play, and the unconscious. In addition to engaging with a variety of key sources in continental philosophy, students will also explore related areas, such as psychoanalysis, sociology and theology.
