Prospective Students

Philosophy

Cambridge University has an especially distinguished place in the history of 20th century philosophy. It was here, in the early years of this century, that Bertrand Russell, G E Moore, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Frank Ramsey and others developed the analytical style of philosophy that is now prominent throughout the world.

The Faculty of Philosophy at Cambridge University retains a strong commitment to this analytic style, though this does not preclude active study and teaching of the history of philosophy from Socrates to Nietzsche, and of such subjects as aesthetics and political philosophy.

Although a Philosophy degree is not an essential qualification for most careers, the analytic and critical skills developed through the study of Philosophy prepare graduates for a variety of professions, including computing, journalism, administration and the law.
