PhD Studentships: 'Normativity'The University of Aberdeen invites applications for 4 PhD studentships in the first tranche of a research project investigating conceptual and historical aspects of the problem of Normativity.
In the fields of legal theory, philosophical ethics and theological ethics, as well as at their many points of intersection, the abiding question of the nature, sources, knowledge and significance of normative claims and judgments is at the heart of many important contemporary scholarly and critical public debates. The project takes three terms—nature, narrative and nihilism—as rubrics under which to explore the important and vexing problems and questions related to normativity in these respective fields of inquiry.
Awards consist of full fee waivers (three years of full-time PhD study at the Home/EU or Overseas student rate as appropriate in each case) and annual maintenance stipends of £3,600 for three years of full-time study.
