Centre for Social Philosophy Word Cloud

We seek to provide an organisational locus for rigorous critical philosophical research into the nature of social phenomena, in particular around our 4 focus areas.

We want to link together researchers, social theorists, activists and others from across and outside of the University to answer key questions that matter to how we understand the social world.
