Content

The BA (Hons) Philosophy and Politics covers a range of approaches. Politics investigates how political structures and ideologies shape our lives and are organised differently around the world. Philosophy is an in-depth study 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.
