Philosophy requires students to ask fundamental questions about what it means to be a human being.
Philosophy at Clifton is taught by specialists with experience and expertise across the various topics. It is a Sixth Form exam subject only, but a good level of Maths and English at GCSE is required to be able to tackle the course successfully.
Why Study at Clifton?
Clifton has a very strong tradition of producing philosophers of international significance – Grice, Prichard, Blackburn, Geach and McTaggart are all OC’s. Recent Cliftonians have also found the study of philosophy to be both rewarding and a pathway to the very best UK universities. Furthermore, it complements both STEM subjects and humanities. Resources in the department and in the Percival Library are outstandingly good.
