Ethics and Political Theory
The course covers questions such as what makes life worth living? What makes a society just, and its laws worth respecting? What do we owe to members of other societies, generations and species? Can any of the answers to these questions really be true? If so, how can we know which answers to believe and what reasons, if any, do we have to act upon them? The purpose of the course (by research) is to enable you to address these and other philosophical issues of pressing personal and public concern.
A degree in Philosophy (2.1 or above or equivalent from a university outside the UK) or another relevant subject is a prerequisite for admission.
Modules include: Moral philosophy; contemporary political philosophy; philosophy of law; fairness; property rights.
