Environment, Technology and Philosophy

Environment, Technology & Philosophy: while you will share your first year with all other philosophy students, gaining a grounding in the history of philosophy and in contemporary reflections on the validity of scientific knowledge, from the second year onwards you will turn more explicitly to themes of the environment, technology and science in the contemporary world. Units like Greek Philosophy: The Pre-Socratics, Plato and Aristotle will reflect on the birth of ‘scientific thinking’ in European philosophy; Nietzsche’s Philosophy will bring into question a more modern attempt at reflecting on modern science and technology; Science, Technology and the Environment will look at philosophical solutions to contemporary problems.
