This Section brings together Fellows who specialise in philosophy.

Focus of this Section

The subject of this Section is philosophy. Academic philosophy is best thought of as the patient investigation of the concepts that make up the scaffolding of thought. These include concepts involved in logic, such as meaning, truth, reason, objectivity, and inference, those involved in the sciences such as space, time, causation, natural law, and scientific method, those involved in understanding ourselves, such as motivation, emotion, consciousness, experience and intention, and those central to morals and politics, such as the right and the good, duties and rights, or law and social norms in general. The topics are familiar, but the attempts to fit them together into a coherent world view have occupied thinkers throughout history.
