Philosophical Frontiers is a unique opportunity to explore cutting-edge philosophy in small-group environments. The module focuses on a newly published or forthcoming philosophical monograph from any tradition or specialization. There is likely to be direct contact with the author towards the end of the module, either by email, skype or a visiting lecture. Teaching is seminar-based, with a focus on student-led discussion and learning. Although there are no pre-requisites, the intensive nature of the module requires a keen interest in philosophy and a commitment to seminar attendance. Due to the research focus, it is good preparation for your undergraduate thesis.
