Philosophy

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.
