How far are the ways in which we reflect on the world and understand it a product of the particular history of western culture? Has western philosophy, whether as practiced by the Ancient Greeks, the Renaissance, or the Enlightenment profoundly shaped the way in which western society has developed? Or should we understand philosophical ideas as merely reflecting the world in which they are developed, rather than playing a leading role in changing it? History and Philosophy is designed for students who understand the importance of thinking critically about how we know and experience the world, but who also recognise the importance of linking precision in thought and analysis to a grounded understanding of different historical periods. It is aimed at students who are interested in ideas for their own sake, but who recognise that they are developed in particular contexts, for particular purposes, and reflect the conditions under which they are produced.
