Course Summary

This Modern European Philosophy MA course is recognised as one of the most challenging and stimulating philosophy master’s programmes in the UK. Based on a focused study of the fundamental texts of the modern European philosophical tradition, it provides an ideal preparation for doctoral research in philosophy or related fields in the humanities and social sciences. It will also prepare graduates for a wide range of careers in education, the arts, politics and public policy.

The course is based at the UK's leading Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy (CRMEP), where you will be part of a large, supportive and stimulating postgraduate community. This course engages in depth with fundamental texts in modern European philosophy, including Kant, Hegel and Marx through to contemporary thinkers more recently. You'll be assessed through short exercises, essays, independent study, and a 15,000-word dissertation.


This module provides students with a grounding in Kant's philosophy, through detailed study of the Critique of Pure Reason and its competing interpretations. The module presents Kant's critical project as an historical and conceptual basis for the understanding of subsequent European philosophy as a whole.
