In Philosophy

The Department of Philosophy supports innovative research in three broad areas of philosophy:

  • Language, Mind and Knowledge​
  • Morality, Society and Environment​
  • Methodology

While our overall research profile is highly diverse, our staff share a concern for philosophical methodology and the discipline's relation to the humanities and the social sciences, and work in interdisciplinary collaboration with colleagues from other Schools of study.​

We connect our research with the wider world through an expansive library of books, articles and monographs published by our researchers, including works written with a non-academic audience in mind. Our events, conferences and media interactions aim to foster public engagement with philosophical ideas, impacting society in its behaviour and aspirations.​
