Success in REF 2021 for the Department of Philosophy

The Department of Philosophy is pleased to announce an impressive set of results for the REF 2021 assessment of Research Excellence. 48% of our research outputs (e.g., books, book chapters, and articles) were assessed as 4* (world leading); 45% of our overall submission was also assessed as 4* (so, that includes research outputs, research impact (non-academic change/effect/benefit based on our research), and our research environment). Altogether, this is an excellent outcome for the Philosophy Department, and an achievement that the Department plans to build on in the future.

 The UK’s Research Excellence Framework (REF) is an internationally recognised system for assessing the quality of research carried out in UK Higher Education Institutions.

Professor Quassim Cassam is a Guest Speaker on BBC Radio 4's 'The Moral Maze'

Professor Quassim Cassam participated in a recent edition of BBC Radio 4’s flagship debating programme, The Moral Maze, exploring the topical theme of Expectations and Apologies.

“Anthropology tells us that the basic rules of morality are universal. But socialists say that cultural norms dictate how we are to behave, and Britain is culturally diverse…perhaps we should live with our politicians’ clay feet and look elsewhere for paragons of moral virtue?” (BBC website)
