Philosophy and Sociology - University of Essex

Not just quiet contemplation – philosophy has great practical value. You study philosophy and sociology together in order to appreciate the relationships between them with a degree of critical awareness. Philosophy analyses broad ideas around human life and the nature of existence. It concerns theories of reality, knowledge, morality, ethics, rights, legality and aesthetics. Sociology examines the different kinds of social tensions, interactions and networks that make up everyday life. It asks why individuals, groups, cultures and peoples are the way they are and how they might be different.
