PHIL 4103B - Honours Philosophy Thesis Two Year Final

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2016

The course information on this page is being finalised for 2016. Please check again before classes commence.

The honours thesis provides an opportunity to investigate a philosophical problem in depth. Students will research and write an extended piece that presents a coherent and detailed argument for a philosophical position, or that compares and contrasts viewpoints in a contemporary debate. They will learn to: i) critically analyse philosophical material, ii) map out an argument strategy, and iii) prepare and present a scholarly document, all at an advanced level, and with a focus on the current state of play in some domain of philosophy. The honours thesis is a preliminary apprentice piece; not as detailed or significant as a Masters or PhD thesis, but a first step in the process of becoming an independent researcher.
