Essex Philosophy is internationally recognised for its unique combination of Anglo-American and European continental
philosophy. We are committed to fostering a variety of philosophical
approaches, and to developing links between philosophy and other disciplines.
In the last
Research Assessment Exercise we came first for Continental Philosophy, as
well as being placed in the top ten philosophy research departments in the UK, top 10 in
The Guardian's ranking of philosophy departments
in the UK in 2010, 2011 and 2013, and received 97% in the 2012 National Student Satisfaction Survey for overall student satisfaction.
