Monash’s philosophy department has consistently been ranked one of the top few Australia, and counts many scholars of international reputation among its alumni.
In 2017 three Monash Philosophy alumni will be associated with Oxford’s Faculty of Philosophy. Martin Davies is the Wilde Professor of Mental Philosophy, Julian Savalescu is the Uehiro Professor of Practical Ethics, and in 2017 Michael Smith will be the John Locke Lecturer.
Reflecting on the success of Monash Philosophy alumni, Head of Department Dr Monima Chadha, said that the Monash Philosophy Department has managed to preserve a culture that values its teaching very highly.
“Monash Philosophy is one of the few Departments in the world, other than Oxford itself, which can boast of three named professors at Oxford philosophy at any given time,” said Dr Chadha.
“We value research at all levels and strive to provide an environment that encourages cutting edge research,” said Dr Chadha.
The Oxford appointments are in the area of Philosophy of Mind and Cognition and Moral Philosophy and Applied Ethics, and Dr Chadha explained that research strengths in those areas continues to flourish at Monash Philosophy.
Martin and Michael completed their undergraduate major and Honours in Philosophy at Monash, and Julian completed his PhD in Philosophy with the Monash Philosophy Department.
