Mind & Reality
The Mind & Reality seminar series engages students with classic texts and debates on key topics in theoretical philosophy. It develops the research, speaking and writing skills that are requisite for a career in the philosophy profession as well as supportive of an informed, reflective and thoughtful approach to life. The course also helps prepare students for their dissertation.
The topics of the student’s summative assessments can be chosen from a wide selection offered by the module leader at the start of Michaelmas.
Members of the NCH Philosophy faculty who have a special interest in the debates related to theoretical philosophy include Dr Brian Ball, Dr Naomi Goulder, Professor AC Grayling, Professor Christopher Peacocke, Professor Simon Blackburn, Dr David Mitchell, Professor Peter Singer, Dr Ioannis Votsis, Professor Nicholas Humphrey, and Professor Daniel C Dennett.
The Mind & Reality course is assessed by an essay of 2,500 words in length. The subject of the essay can be chosen from a range of options, and its development is supported by individual tutorials with relevant members of the NCH London Philosophy faculty.
