We are pleased to announce that David McBride, who submitted his PhD Moral Equality – An Article of Faith?, has been passed with no corrections.
Here is David, enjoying a post-PhD holiday in Italy.
On the 11th July, Sophie Grace was on Free Thinking on Radio 3, talking about Plato’s Symposium. You can still hear it on i-player; the link is here:
OU Philosophy has a strong and lively group of PhD students who—despite being scattered over a number of countries—come together whenever they can to present their work in progress to each other and to Philosophy staff. In early June we met at Darwin College, Cambridge, to hear papers and exchange ideas on research topics including “Logical atomism in Plato and Wittgenstein”, “Body enhancement and the essence of sport”, “What we learn from literature”, “Beauty in musical aesthetics“, and “Emotion in art”. Even though we met on one of the hottest days in the year—which is why we are meeting behind drawn curtains!—discussions were very lively and convivial, and continued in the pub afterwards until late in the evening. We wish all the best to the three PhD students who will have had their vivas by the time we meet again. (SGC)
