However a substantial amount of laboratory work is replaced by lecture courses and project work in philosophy. Typical course units forming the Philosophy stream include: Moral Philosophy; Theory of Knowledge; Philosophy of Science and Ethics. The works of Spinoza, Wittgenstein and Aristotle might also be studied. You undertake a major project in an area of physics and philosophy in your fourth year as well as choosing from a diverse range of philosophy and physics fourth year course units.
