The Essex Autonomy Project is embedded in the School of Philosophy and Art History at Essex. We are part of a vibrant research culture in the School and work with students and researchers from across the University.
Philosophy at Essex is internationally recognised for its unique combination of Anglo-American and European continental philosophy. We are in the top ten philosophy departments in the UK for the quality of our research, with the latest Research Assessment Exercise rating 85 percent of our research activity as either ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’.
The School has leading expertise in critical theory, phenomenology, medical humanities and classical German philosophy. We have a large and diverse student body who have come to Essex from across the world to study at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. If you would like more information about studying philosophy at Essex please see the School website.
The School of Philosophy and Art History is also home to the Ethics of Powerlessness, a three year project working on the ethical challenges arising from experiences of powerlessness, especially in palliative and end-of-life care.
