Karim Thébault (Bristol): “Cosmic Singularity Resolution via Quantum Evolution”

Classical models of the universe generically feature a big bang singularity. That is, when we consider progressively earlier and earlier times, physical quantities stop behaving in a reasonable way. A particular problem is that physical quantities related to the curvature of spacetime become divergent. A long standing hope is […]

The MSc in Philosophy and Public Policy is intense and demanding, but is also ultimately highly rewarding. The scope of the programme is broad. Students can ask and engage with the most esoteric of questions (How should we prepare for the advent of artificial intelligence with capabilities superior to humans?) to the most basic (What is equality?). There is […]

I would strongly recommend anyone to pursue a MSc in Philosophy of Science at the LSE. The intellectual challenge in combination with brilliant professors and classmates contributed to making this an experience for life. Worth to note is also that I found this degree tremendously useful when applying for jobs in the tech industry later on. A strong foundation […]

Stephan Leuenberger (Glasgow): “Scrutability and the Problem of Cross-Family Quantification”

One such thesis says, roughly speaking, that every truth about the world could, in principle, be “read off” a complete list of the physical facts and the facts about conscious experience. However, […]

The MSc in Philosophy and Public Policy is a unique blend of theoretical and practical analysis, giving you wide scope to think deeply and critically about issues that press on the public consciousness. I found the subject material relevant and engaging, the assessment tasks challenging, and the lecturers supportive in their tireless attempts to push you further. I’ve broadened […]

The MSc in Economics & Philosophy is the perfect degree for anyone interested in a more complete education in economics, which should investigate both the philosophical underpinnings and quantitative rigour of the subject. I was particularly impressed with how relevant the philosophy courses were to my understanding of economics. The programme and courses are designed to draw on the […]

The Minds of Whales (the Forum)

What is it like to be a whale? How do they think and what do they feel? How are their social groups structured, and how do whale ‘cultures’ arise? And how has human thought and human culture been influenced by interaction with whales? In this dialogue, two internationally recognized whale experts — prize-winning […]
