The 2010 Gifford Lectures will be given this year by Roger Scruton, one of Britain’s best known and most distinguished philosophers and public intellectuals. Through a series of six lectures some of the most fundamental philosophical, ethical and human issues will be addressed including those of religion and science, of freedom and determinism, of self and other, of the meaning of art, architecture and music, and of sacrifice and scapegoating.
We are delighted to announce the appointment of two new lecturers in Philosophy. Ephraim Glick (PhD MIT) will join us in September 2010, and Derek Ball (PhD UT Austin) will become a lecturer in September 2012, once he has completed his current post-doc in Arche. Congratulations Ephraim and Derek!
This coming week (March 9-12) sees the first Festival of Philosophy organised and hosted by the University of St Andrew’s Centre for Ethics, Philosophy and Public Affairs.
We are delighted to announce a PhD funding opportunity within SASP. St Andrews is part of a European-wide network for training and research in philosophy, and we can offer generous funding for a PhD student working within the areas covered by this network.
