Course summary

Find out more about the TEF.

Philosophy involves being open to new and different responses to familiar and unfamiliar questions. Dundee is unique in Scotland in specialising in continental philosophy. This means we teach philosophy primarily through reading and discussing key texts from the European tradition, including some of the most exciting thinkers of the last century: Nietzsche, Sartre, Foucault, Deleuze, and de Beauvoir. You will be encouraged to make links between philosophy and other subjects, such as politics, literature, film, the environment, psychology, and computer science. If you ever find yourself thinking about big questions beyond everyday experience - questions that may never have a single, final answer - then you would probably enjoy studying philosophy.
