New Philosophy modules launched

Published: 8 April 2014

Philosophy at Southampton will continue to expand its undergraduate programme in 2014-15, with the addition of several new modules reflecting the research interests of academic staff.

Dr. Lee Walters will teach a second-year module on Metaphysics – the study of the ultimate nature of reality. In less grandiose terms: what kinds of things are there, and what are they like? Dr. Elselijn Kingma’s new final-year module, 'Gender, Philosophy and Feminism', will explore issues such as the nature of gender, equality between the sexes, and objectification. Dr. Sasha Mudd will teach a new module on the Philosophy of Emotion – a hotly debated area of philosophy that draws connections between the nature of mind and the nature of value. Dr. Kurt Sylvan, our most recent new member of staff, will teach a module entitled ‘Reason, Rationality and Ethics’, exploring links between reasons, human rationality and morality.

In addition to this, our offering in Political Philosophy will expand, with new modules on Global Justice and The Ethics and Politics of Migration.

These new modules add to an already outstanding curriculum for Southampton undergraduates, with flexibility and breadth of choice at its heart.

Details of modules to be taught in any given academic year are subject to change.
