The Philosophy discipline welcomes applications for graduate work in the history of philosophy; in particular, ancient philosophy, 19th- and 20th-century German philosophy, late-19th- and 20th-century French philosophy, and the history of philosophy of science. Several members of the discipline work in this area: Sohie Grace Chappell has published extensively on Ancient Philosophy; Christina Chimisso is an authority on the history of philosophy of science; and Manuel Dries is an authority of Nietzsche. Research and research students are at the heart of the discipline. In joining us, you would join a lively and friendly graduate community. The discipline hosts papers by visiting speakers throughout the year, and an annual graduate conference at which students give papers on their work in progress.
Please consult the discipline website for details of applications for funded PhD places under the the Open-Oxford-Cambridge Doctoral Training Scheme. Details of how to apply can be found on the website.
