MSc Alumni in Philosophy of Science

Pranav Dalmia (2012–2013)

Having read philosophy at the undergraduate level despite my overt scientific inclinations, a Master’s in philosophy of science seemed to be the logical confluence of my two streams of interest. LSE’s MSc Philosophy of Science, with its lofty reputation and long list of eminent faculty members, promised to embody precisely what I was looking for. After arriving at LSE, […]

The master’s program in Philosophy of Science at the LSE provided the philosophical training for me to pivot my academic career from the natural sciences to philosophy of science. After completing a master’s in biochemistry and structural biology, I arrived at the LSE hoping to transition from laboratory research to scientifically-engaged philosophical research. Although I lacked any formal training […]

How my studies went?

I came to the LSE after studying a degree in Political Economy, although my background wasn’t of the sciences, I didn’t feel at a disadvantage at all.

I felt the programme was excellent. I was always tested and felt challenged. From philosophy of science to the philosophy of choice, the detail and the breadth of the work […]

Even before starting the MSc in Philosophy of Science I knew I wanted to do a PhD in Philosophy at LSE. The master programme offered me the right environment to develop the necessary skills for making a successful application to a PhD programme and the intellectual background and confidence for embarking on such a project. The programme offers a wide variety of […]

I joined LSE having read Philosophy, Politics and Economics at the undergraduate level. I was attracted by the clear focus of the course content, which would allow me to obtain a good depth of understanding of the subject within a short space of time. One also could not deny the opportunity to stand on the shoulders of […]

I came to LSE with a background in theoretical physics. My hope was to get the philosophical background needed to do research on the philosophical foundations of physics. The courses I took in the MSc programme in Philosophy of Science were simply excellent and prepared me well for my current studies as a PhD Fellow at the […]

Shortly after returning to Poland, I started a journalist internship in a big Polish weekly (circulation approx 130,000). I am writing mostly about the impact of science and technology on our interconnected society. This is very much related to my studies at LSE (MSc Philosophy of Science).

Stephan Guettinger (2009–2010)

I did the MSc in Philosophy of Science at LSE because I wanted to change my field of work: coming from the life sciences, I wanted to leave the bench and do research on the more general questions addressed in philosophy of (life) science. The MSc at LSE offered me exactly what I was looking for: an […]

Marina Baldissera Pacchetti (2009–2010)

29 September 2010|

My choice to embark on the MSc program in History and Philosophy of Science at LSE came from a strong tendency toward investigating my field of interest at a deeper and more thorough level; before starting the MSc, in fact, I had graduated in Mathematics and Physics at UCL. I chose the LSE because it offered what I was […]

I was attracted to the LSE program by the large range of subjects covered, and I wasn’t disappointed, having benefitted from intercollegiate teaching at KCL. Both lectures and seminars are given by experts in the field, and class sizes are generally small, allowing personal interaction. I also profited from attending events organised through LSE’s Centre for Philosophy […]
