You will explore the development of these ideas in classic philosophical texts while developing your ability to craft arguments and engage in debate.
In your first year, you will be introduced to fundamental philosophical ideas. These include:
- The existence of truth
- The concept of the ‘subject’
- Faith and reason
- The relationship between religion and violence.
You will also be given a grounding of key ideas from the realms of politics and law as you consider their place within contemporary society.
In your second year, you will begin to mould your degree around your interests.
You will begin to examine the application of philosophy and ethics to a range of contemporary and relevant issues, such as climate change and the environment, political extremism, freedom and justice, bio-ethics, and issues of race and gender.
By your final year, you will have a strong sense of what area you would like to focus on for your final dissertation project.
Alongside your thesis, you will have the opportunity to explore more specific aspects of Philosophy and Ethics, including: the politics of twentieth century European dictators, British culture wars, political theology, and the relationship between religion, sexuality and gender.
