Philosophy of mind, metaphysics and epistemology

Philosophy of mind, metaphysics and epistemologyThe Department of Philosophy at Warwick has an international reputation for excellence in both teaching and research, and is fortunate in belonging to one of Britain’s most dynamic and prosperous universities, having a substantial and coherently developed Undergraduate and Graduate Programme with an active student community.

In conjunction with the recent appointment of Bill Brewer as a professor in the Warwick Philosophy Department, we are launching a whole range of initiatives designed to support graduate study, and research activities generally, in the area of philosophy of mind, metaphysics and epistemology.

More information about the new initiatives is available from the Philosophy department website.

If you are interested in Undergraduate courses in Philosophy visit the Undergraduate Directory for more information.

Distinguished Visitors:
The department has arranged a series of at least six distinguished visitors over three years to come and work in Warwick for 1-2 weeks, give a colloquium, a couple of graduate seminars and the odd one-off graduate supervision.
The department will be appointing a 3-4 year Research Fellow in philosophy of mind/metaphysics/epistemology). This is in addition to the recent appointment of a new permanent member of staff in philosophy of mind/metaphysics/epistemology: Dr. Stephen Butterfill.

Graduate Conference:
We organise an annual graduate conference in the area: this year keynote speakers are Chris Peacocke (Columbia) and Richard Moran (Harvard). See the conference details...

The department will underwrite AHRB applications for two incoming graduate students in mind, met and ep each year, so we can guarantee full funding and a fee waver by the University.

A weekly joint faculty-graduate seminar in the area. See our seminar list for more information.

Interdisciplinary seminars in connection with the AHRB interdisciplinary research project on causal understanding. See the causal list for more information
