Philosophy

The Philosophy department is one of the  foremost centres for the philosophy of biology in the world. It offers excellent training in rigorous thinking, asking some of the questions most fundamental to human life.

Based in the department of Sociology, Philosophy and Anthropology, our academic staff hold doctorates in Sociology, Philosophy, Anthropology, History, Biochemistry and Physics. We are one of the most diverse academic units in any UK university. This interdisciplinarity means we are able to provide research and teaching programmes that unite empirical, historical-epistemological, practical, theoretical and critical perspectives.

Our work is both descriptively and normatively oriented and our research has been published by Cambridge, Oxford, MIT, Chicago, University of California, Harvard, Routledge, Sage and other leading publishers.
