You will investigate the origin, nature, methods, and limits of human knowledge; traditions of argumentation; as well as political and ethical systems of thought from a truly global perspective.This degree will also allow you to study the methods of social anthropological investigation, emphasising the detailed study of multiple, interwoven areas of social and cultural life, through long participation and linguistic familiarity.
