University of Cambridge has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
Philosophy explores human thought, the basis of knowledge, the nature of reason, consciousness and cognition, as well as the foundations of value and political theory. Cambridge occupies a distinguished place in the history of philosophy, as it was here, in the early twentieth century, that the analytic style of philosophy was developed. Today, the Faculty retains a strong commitment to this analytic tradition, combining it with study of the history of philosophy from Plato to the present day to offer one of the most far-reaching courses of its kind available anywhere in the world.
