Description

Do you enjoy discussing the pros and cons of broad issues affecting society? Do you relish puzzle-solving? Do you like subjects that emphasise rigorous thought? If so, philosophy might be the right subject for you. Philosophy considers extremely general and 'ultimate' problems, such as the nature of reality, the purpose of human existence, and the basis of knowledge. It also scrutinises the methods that are used to answer such questions. Cambridge is one of the best places to get a grounding in analytic philosophy and our course is one of the few in which it's possible to concentrate entirely on philosophy without taking any other subject (although you can diversify within the subject if you wish). To find out more about Philosophy at Cambridge, see http://www.study.cam.ac.uk/undergraduate/courses/philosophy/. Some of the students who appear in our course films are also featured in the 60 Second Impressions series, which can be found at http://www.cam.ac.uk/60seconds/ - keep checking back as we'll be adding new films every couple of weeks!
