This year Keele philosophy is welcoming three new PhD students, two new MPhil students and two new MRes students, its largest postgraduate intake by far since it joined SPIRE a decade ago.

The PhD students are: Jonathan Head, who was awarded Keele’s new Graduate Student Teaching Scholarship from the Adrian Piper Research Archive Foundation in Berlin/Keele ACORN Fund/Keele HMSS Faculty, and whose topic is “Kant’s Critical Philosophy of Hope and Salvation”; Lavinia Udrea, who was awarded a Keele HMSS Faculty studentship and who will be working on moral philosophy and environmental sustainability; and Philippe Blenkiron, who will work on themes at the intersection of aesthetics and political philosophy.

The MPhil students will be working on the normative relevance of phenomenology (Robert Eggett) and on Heidegger’s interpretation of Nietzsche (Matthew Sharp). The MRes students (Nicholas Heath and John Wootton) will take an advanced course in metaphilosophy (the study of the nature of philosophy).
