About Philosophy, PhD - at Cardiff University

Within moral and political philosophy, we have expanded our concentration of expertise on Nietzsche. Work in applied ethics has continued in the area of health and been extended to include the ethics of sport and of biobanking and nutrigenomics.

Research in philosophy of mind and psychology has grown to include interdisciplinary publications on the nature of perception and critical analysis of the conceptual framework underpinning the science of consciousness.

The research programme aims to offer knowledge and expertise to take you on to a role in Higher Education, or employment requiring high-level skills in research or advanced subject knowledge.

This PhD programme recruits a diverse range of Home/EU and International students who want to engage in a research environment that is characterised by the combination of expertise across both analytic and continental approaches to philosophy.
