Philosophy at St Andrews

St Andrews is one of the leading international centres for philosophy in Britain.

In the most recent Research Assessment Exercise, St Andrews Philosophy was ranked joint-first with University College London amongst all UK Philosophy departments. 40% of philosophical research at St Andrews was awarded the highest grade (4*, 'world leading'). The St Andrews/Stirling graduate programme (SASP) was ranked second in Britain in a recent US-based survey.

There is a busy programme of conferences, workshops and visiting speakers from universities in the UK and from abroad. The Philosophy Club, which is open to everyone, is the regular visiting speakers' seminar. Several specialized research seminars meet weekly or fortnightly. There is also a Friday Seminar for doctoral students, and a seminar specifically for MLitt students.

There are two philosophical research centres in St Andrews: The Centre for Ethics, Philosophy and Public Affairs (CEPPA), and the Arché Philosophical Research Centre for the Philosophy of Logic, Language, Metaphysics and Epistemology. The Philosophical Quarterly, one of the most respected international philosophy journals, is edited from St Andrews.
