Combining Philosophy and History is the opportunity to understand how knowledge, ideas and myth has developed throughout history. Studying topics like the Scientific Revolution and the Enlightenment will aid your understanding of how people in the early modern period perceived life and death, science and religion, and reality and imagination. You cover ancient philosophy including the work of Plato and Aristotle through to modern theories of ethics, to understand how knowledge has evolved and progressed in science, religion, politics and every day life.
Many of our courses offer a choice of optional modules to tailor your learning experience. More information about these can be found on the University of Essex website.
