  • social ethics, epistemology, and metaphysics
  • Chinese social philosophy
  • environmental ethics
  • the philosophies of race, of gender, and of sexuality.

Our first year module 'Philosophy and the Contemporary World' also often addresses issues such as moral obligations to refugees, religion in the media, forms of social inequality, and more besides!
