Section Leader: Dr James Clarke
We have research strengths across the history of philosophy, from the ancient Greeks to the twenty-first century. Within the department we run regular workshops and reading groups: our animation illustrating Proclus’ neo-Platonic metaphysics can be viewed here.
In collaboration with Sheffield and Leeds, we have established a Centre for the History of Philosophy (CHiPhi), to draw together expertise and encourage collaborative activity. At York, we participate in the work of the Centres for Modern Studies, Eighteenth Century Studies and Renaissance and Early Modern Studies.
A number of our staff contribute to this research area, and are interested in supervising PhD work. Click the links to learn more about their work:
