The course's primary focus is on the way in which religious traditions represent strands of philosophical thought and its development. A major concern is the interplay between secular philosophy and religious reflection and analysis. The balance of provision will enable you to develop your philosophical skills and understanding. A foundational feature of the course will be its engagement with you via the use of primary texts and a focus on developing you as a sophisticated reader and writer. This is partnered with an ongoing endeavour of promoting philosophy as transformational, as practical and as a living tradition of engagement with the wider world, an underlying ethos to which the teaching team are committed.
