Director of Research Professor David Archard
The individuals in the philosophy research subject area cover collectively a broad range of philosophy: metaphysics, philosophy of mind, philosophy of language, philosophical logic, history of philosophy (ancient and modern), epistemology, moral philosophy, political philosophy, philosophy of law, and philosophy of religion. Each individual has a clearly established academic identity, reflected in past, current and planned publications. Their individual efforts are reinforced by synergic contact with other members.
The subject area has a regular programme of lectures, seminars and workshops. Many Thursday afternoons at 3:30 pm there is a research seminar which takes place in room 20.103, School of Politics, International Studies, and Philosophy. Some of these events are funded by the Belfast Branch of the Royal Institute of Philosophy and are open to members of the general public.
