Philosophy in Oxford
Some say don’t overthink it. We beg to differ…
The city of Oxford is no stranger to philosophy. The city’s world-renowned university has been teaching the subject since medieval times. Some of the world’s great philosophers have also studied or taught here, from the Catholic dissident John Wycliffe through to the ‘Father of Liberalism’ John Locke. Not only is the university’s philosophy faculty regularly ranked top in the UK – its impressive list of lecturers has included Amartya Sen and Noam Chomsky to name but a few.
It’s no wonder then, that aspiring thinkers and philosophers are drawn to studying a summer course here in Oxford. If you fancy grappling with big topics such as the ethics of war or the relationship between the existence of God versus the existence of evil, then you’ve certainly come to the right place.
