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:

  • Consciousness
    The problem of consciousness has been called the ‘hard problem’. How is it possible for a lump of grey matter inside our skulls to be conscious? How can it have a perspective, be distraught or cheerful, how can it experience red and so on?
  • Twentieth Century Marxist Philosophy
    Marxism was a dominant political force in the twentieth century; it also thrived intellectually, with many thinkers both drawn to Marxist theory and keen to take it in new directions. This course will examine some of the key strands in this tradition.
  • Science and Philosophy
    Science and philosophy become entangled at many points. It is a difficult but fascinating task to disentangle where science ends and philosophy begins, and to discern what are the distinct contributions of science and philosophy to our understanding.
  • Philosophy Gym: starting to think philosophically (Online)
    Have you ever wondered where the universe came from? Whether time travel is possible? Whether its morally acceptable to genetically design babies? If God exists? If so then you have already started to do philosophy.
  • Exploring Ethics
    Why be moral? This course will deal with questions about right and wrong, good and bad. Philosophers throughout the ages have given reasons for why we should live the ethical life. This course will explore their ideas.
