The BA (Hons) Philosophy and History covers a range of approaches, from thematic modules that cover a variety of places and historical periods, to concentrated and in-depth studies of the development of Western intellectual tradition.
Philosophy seeks to understand, and particularly to question, ideas concerning the nature of reality, value and experience that play a pervasive role in understanding the world and ourselves. The philosophy discipline focuses on problematic concepts, such as existence, reason and truth, which occur in every sphere of human enquiry, but more specifically on problematic concepts that belong to particular areas of thought and practice, such as politics, economics, religion, science and ethics.
