We build on the tradition of interdisciplinary research at Sussex. This includes strong links between the Department of Philosophy and the School of English.

You’ll study in a stimulating environment for creative thinking, open discussion and critical engagement, where you'll draw on ideas from literature, philosophy (analytic and continental), psychology and intellectual history.

You have the opportunity to examine central topics that arise at the intersection of philosophy and literature, such as:
-The autonomy of the work of art
-Literature as philosophy
-Ethics and literature
-The experience of reading
-Style and narrative
-Modernism and modernity

How will I study?

You will be assessed through term papers and a 15,000-word dissertation.
