This joint degree offers the best of both Philosophical and Religious Studies. Students will study the sacred texts and world philosophies taught by various religious traditions, alongside the writings of some of the greatest Western philosophers. Students will explore fascinating debates concerning human nature, conceptions of the divine, belief and doubt, existence, truth, and to reflect on the ways we think we know what we know. Students will also learn a variety of methods for approaching such profound questions, and Manchester's emphasis is distinctive: for Religious Studies, we offer the opportunity to study a diversity of religious traditions and their texts, focusing on their real-world impact and for Philosophy we offer both Analytic and Continental philosophy. Analytic Philosophy is concerned with the clarification of ideas and the language we use to express their ideas, and has been highly influential in Anglo-American philosophy. Continental Philosophy denotes a cluster of philosophical movements originating in 19th and 20th century continental Europe, and covers such areas as structuralism, hermeneutics, existentialism, phenomenology, and deconstruction.
