Why study Philosophy at Warwick?

  • Our academics produce world-leading research in both analytic and continental philosophy, and are involved in teaching at all levels. This means that you are learning from individuals at the forefront of their fields from day one.
  • Our courses are designed to help you develop clear, rigorous and creative responses to challenging and fundamental questions in a stimulating and inspiring intellectual environment.
  • We emphasise the study of Philosophy’s core traditions (e.g. in the works of Plato, Aristotle, Descartes, Hume and Kant) as a background to understanding and critically interrogating more recent philosophical questions and concerns (as these have arisen in the works of Hegel, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Sartre, Russell, Frege and Wittgenstein, among others).
