You will work with our fantastic team of academic staff and current students to deepen your understanding of the subject in interactive online classes, independent work, and engaging group projects. You will also have the opportunity to try out other subjects throughout the week.
Philosophy has been taught at the university since its foundation in 1583, and Edinburgh is currently ranked 6th in the UK and 20th in the world for philosophy teaching (QS 2020). Studying philosophy introduces you to the thinking of some of the great philosophers of the past and present, and illuminates the connections between diverse areas of human experience. It also makes you more aware of the assumptions that form the basis of your beliefs. Throughout the digital summer school, you will work with our fantastic team of academic staff and current students to consider some of the great philosophical questions. You will work on topics such as mind, ethics, time travel and language through interactive online classes, independent study, and engaging group project work. You will also have the opportunity to try out other subjects throughout the week.
