Philosophy at Kent is the home of a vibrant research community, with particular strengths in the areas of: Normativity, understood as encompassing investigations into norms and values across ethics, political philosophy, aesthetics, epistemology, language, logic and philosophy of mind and action and Theoretical reasoning, understood as encompassing formal epistemology as well as inference methods and their application to contemporary mathematics, science and medicine.
