Philosophy Bites

mza_7220911957896699341.600x600-75My Philosophy Bites podcast on “Liberalism and Intervention”, an interview with Nigel Warburton produced by David Edmonds, is part of the special series “Multiculturalism Bites”, available here.

I supervise students on the MPhil in Philosophy and the PhD in Philosophy, both at the Faculty of Philosophy. Admissions decisions for MPhils and PhDs are made by the Degree Committee of the Faculty of Philosophy, so I cannot make any offer of supervision directly to a student. Please visit the Faculty website for details of how to apply.

Prospective graduate students should note that admission to the MPhil is usually conditional on previous specialisation in Philosophy. PhD students are normally admitted to the MPhil in the first instance. Applicants with a Masters degree from elsewhere may be considered for direct admission to the PhD but, again, evidence of previous specialisation in Philosophy is required.

Political Philosophy Workshop

The Political Philosophy Workshop is open to graduate students and above, from all Faculties. It discusses work in progress by doctoral students and above, usually those based in Cambridge. Papers are pre-circulated and there is no presentation, so all participants must join the mailing list and read the papers in advance. To join the mailing list email me at cec66 <at>
