MA Philosophy Studies


As an MA Philosophy student with a keen interest in the arts and aesthetics I will often blog about my thoughts and also upload copies of my essays from previous modules that are completed. (Obviously full copyright is mine, please do not use these essays as your own, they are here simply to read)

I'm currently in the final year of my studies for a Masters in Philosophy with the aim of completing my MA this academic year (2020/2021). Once complete I'm keen then to progress onto a PhD. I have a variety of study interests though I'm currently focusing on aesthetics, communities and emotions. I'm keen to hear from anyone who is also studying for an MA in Philosophy or who is undertaking a PhD. 

Here are links to some of my Philosophical writing: 

Art & Ageism 

Is ‘the conceivability argument’ a proof of dualism

Is abstract really art?  - I wrote this in 2018, a long time before I decided to study philosophy at MA level. I guess I have always been one to question things 

Evaluate Allen Carlson’s account of the objectivity of aesthetic judgements about nature.


Explain the argument Socrates presents for the claim that virtue is knowledge. Is the argument successful? Answer with reference to Meno 86c – 100b.
