“It is not enough to have a good mind. The main thing is to use it well.” - René Descartes

The Single (Hons) Philosophy will equip you with unique skills of thinking critically, rigorously and sensitively about matters of utmost importance in living a meaningful life with confidence. You will reflect upon fundamental debates on a wide spectrum of concepts in ethics, epistemology, philosophy of art and political philosophy, such as, self, reason, meaning, certainty, freedom, democracy, aesthetic judgement, and social justice. You will be taught by internationally recognised published authors in radical and transdisciplinary thought who will carefully guide you in drawing connections between ideas, concepts, arguments and theories within philosophy. Through engagement with great works of philosophy from a variety of traditions, European and non-European, decolonised and feminist, contemporary and historical, you will learn to address conceptual questions with the benefit of a comparative perspective. We aim to acquaint you with analyses of philosophical problems with a focus on bridging divides between traditions of doing philosophy. You will be introduced to radical and innovative strands of philosophy drawing links between the traditional and the modern in a manner that prepares you to step into the increasingly globalized world of work and companionship with self-assurance.
