Philosophy

Programme overview

One of the most exciting areas of contemporary research in philosophy of mind

This programme examines the wide landscape of issues that arise where philosophy of mind meets the study of psychology, linguistics, and cognitive science. In particular, the programme links these issues with the growing body of work in embodied cognition, one of the most exciting areas of contemporary research in philosophy of mind.

The University is at the cutting edge of research in philosophy, and has particular strength in areas that require collaboration between philosophy, psychology, and linguistics.

In December 2014, the Research Excellence Framework highlighted our work in philosophy of mind and cognition as deserving of special mention.
