Module overview

Philosophy is a subject with a long history, but is nonetheless a living subject where research can sometimes progress quickly and where cutting-edge research can overturn centuries of dogma. This module will explore a selection of topics in contemporary philosophy - perhaps recent journal articles or a recent book, perhaps mixed in with ongoing research. In so doing. the module will help you to understand both the subject matter of that contemporary research - whatever it might be - but also to realign your perceptions of what philosophy is and how it is researched today.
