About this Unit
The unit Practical Philosophy deals with the application of philosophical understanding to human activity. ‘Practical philosophy’ in principle encompasses questions of the meaning and appropriateness of various practices, as well as theoretical questions about the nature of practices themselves, questions such as ‘What should we do?’ and ‘What is it that we are doing?’ The unit may thus involve considering philosophical perspectives on ethical, political, educational, and legal questions, and more abstract considerations relating to practices such as the philosophy of action.
