Research Group: 19th and early 20th Century European Philosophy

Currently Active: 

We offer supervision in many areas of 19th and early 20th century European philosophy, with particular research expertise in the work of Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Kierkegaard and Heidegger.

Group Overview

In the influential Philosophical Gourmet Report (2009), we are ranked equal first in the UK and equal fifth internationally for our work in nineteenth-century continental philosophy.

We recently completed a £300K Arts and Humanities Research Council project, titled Nietzsche and Modern Moral Philosophy, which brings together leading philosophers in the fields of Nietzsche scholarship and contemporary ethics with the aim of assessing, and finding responses to, the challenge that Nietzsche’s critique continues to pose to modern moral philosophy.
