Sorry, this course is not currently available on the website. The usual reason for this to happen is that the course is either no longer running or has already run. If you believe this to be incorrect please contact us using our enquiry form.

Below are a selection of courses that we are running, based on the subject of the course you were looking for:

  • Introduction to Epistemology
    What do we know, if anything? What does it mean to know, and to what are we committing ourselves when we claim we know something? Epistemology is one of the central areas in philosophy and these are the questions it investigates.
  • Existentialism
    This course is aimed at introducing students to the key features of the existential movement and its progress within continental thought, taking into account its earliest origins and the contemporary views it influenced.
  • Heidegger and Sartre
    If we want to work out the meaning of life, why not start with our own experience of being alive rather than with scientific theories or abstract arguments? Heidegger and Sartre started their thinking in this way and this course explores their results.
  • Philosophy of Art
    By studying influential philosophers and reflecting on our own encounters with art, we explore the nature of art and possible reasons for valuing it: its beauty, originality and expressiveness, as well as the enjoyment and insights it can provide us with.
  • The Emergent Multiverse
    The Many-Worlds Interpretation (MWI) of quantum mechanics holds that quantum theory is correctly understood as claiming that there are many worlds that exist in parallel to our own. During this weekend we shall be discussing this interpretation of QM.
