How can we make sense of our place in history? Are we moving forward, and if so, how and to what? Or should we instead be more concerned to look backwards? Our Philosophy of History from Kant to Foucault weekly class will examine how thinkers from Kant to Foucault have dealt with these questions.

Two study options are available. If you're local, you can join us in person, in Oxford. If you're not local or would prefer to take the course online, now you can!
