About Philosophy - Arts at University College Cork

Overview

Studying Philosophy will expose you to the most important philosophical ideas,thinkers and frameworks – ancient and modern, western and eastern – enabling you to address contemporary problems in a globalised context.

In a friendly and supportive environment, you will learn to master complex material and apply itto concrete problems, to develop cogent and clear arguments and present them in professionalcontexts.

Philosophy at UCC has particular strengths in moral/political philosophy, as well as in philosophy of mind/action. Its greatest strength, however, is its commitment to pluralism, which combinesthese fields with research and teaching in Aesthetics, European Philosophy, Analytic Philosophy ofMind and Science, Analytic Metaphysics and Action Theory, Comparative Philosophy as well as Moral Philosophy.

The commitment to pluralism is coupled with an equally strong commitment to interdisciplinarity.
