Research Group: Early Modern and Modern Philosophy

Currently Active: 

Philosophers at Southampton have research interests in the history of modern philosophy from the Rationalists and Empiricists to Kant.

Group Overview

We have published on a variety of topics in this area from Spinoza’s metaphysics to Hume’s aesthetics, as well as on the relationship of figures such as Kant to later philosophers such as Nietzsche and Schopenhauer.

Philosophy has teamed up with other disciplines in the University of Southampton’s Faculty of Humanities - specifically, English, History and Music - to establish a Centre for Eighteenth-Century Studies.
