'At Hull, where philosophy has been taught since 1927, we aim not just to teach philosophy as a body of knowledge, but to engage students in doing philosophy, to encourage them to evaluate the ideas of others and form their own understandings of the relation between themselves and their world.
'The approach to philosophy at Hull is an open one. We engage with and teach courses in both Analytic Anglo-American philosophy and, what is often termed Continental philosophy. We see them not as separate spheres but as traditions which benefit from being placed in conversation with each other. There are also opportunities for those who wish to study Eastern philosophical thinking, which, if desired, can form a pathway through the degree. We also specialise in Applied Philosophy, employing philosophical thought to think through the crucial issues of our times and forging interdisciplinary links with politics, law and medicine.'
