PhD studentships in Philosophy at the University of Southampton.

We invite applications for PhD study in Philosophy, especially in areas in which we have research strengths. The department has a long-established international reputation for our work in the History of Philosophy, especially 19th century German philosophy; in analytic aesthetics; and in the thought of Wittgenstein. More recently, the department has become known for world-leading work in epistemology and ethics. We also have strengths in metaphysics, and the philosophies of mind and language. For the most complete picture of our research strengths, see the staff page here:
