Course Description

Philosophy is the systematic attempt to arrive at clear answers to profound questions about issues such as knowledge, life, morality, science and human nature using reason and argument. We host reading parties for students, usually in the Highlands, and have a flourishing undergraduate Philosophy Society. Central and east European Studies: The twentieth century witnessed dramatic changes in the fortunes of the countries of Central and Eastern Europe. War, revolution and widespread social and economic change resulted in a tumultuous period in the history of the region. The collapse of communism and the subsequent changes brought about has ensured that many of the inherited problems continue to this day. From the Baltic to the Balkans and from Berlin to Vladivostock we chart the key issues in this crucial area. The University is a hub for a government-funded Centre of Excellence for Russian, Central & East European Studies, which hosts cultural, social and academic events throughout the year. It is not compulsory but you may wish to study one of the following languages: Hungarian, Czech, Polish or Russian.
