fee GBP 3895

Philosophy is the study of how arguments are put together and taken apart, you will see how arguments are constructed using premises that move to conclusions; and how such arguments can be questioned by attacking the implicit starting assumptions, and by unpicking the thorny question of whether the premises entail the claimed conclusion. Oxford has been at the pinnacle of the study of philosophy for over 800 years, and many of the world’s greats have taught or lectured here. Our philosophy tutors work within this challenging and stimulating department that leads the world in teaching and research.
