ANU School of Philosophy

The School focuses on research and education in many areas of philosophy. Our particular strengths lie in philosophy of mind, philosophy of science, moral and political philosophy, epistemology, metaphysics and European philosophy.

The heart of the School is its research culture. We host about 50-60 international visitors a year. We run three seminar series a week, two named lectures and up to six conferences and workshops a year.

Philosophy was a foundation discipline in the Research School of Social Sciences (RSSS) when ANU was created in the 1940s. The School of Philosophy took on its current form in 2010 when the RSSS assumed responsibility for the administration of undergraduate philosophy at ANU.
