Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:
  1. Explain and analyse the fundamental aspects of different philosophical methodologies.
  2. Explain and analyse central concepts that are pertinent to an understanding of contemporary philosophy, such as gender, democracy and equality.
  3. Write well-researched and well-structured philosophical analyses on the topics covered in the lectures.
In this course we introduce and examine key themes, authors and philosophical methodologies that are prevalent to an understanding of and grounding in contemporary philosophy. In doing so, we aim to equip students with a broad spectrum of philosophical knowledge and critical skills that will enable them to undertake a Masters course in philosophy. The course covers two main themes: (i) the difference between various philosophical methodologies, including analytic philosophy, feminist philosophy, phenomenology and hermeneutics, and (ii) key philosophical concepts that emerge from these methodologies, such as gender, experience, knowledge and morality.
