Philosophy Lecture Year Plan for 2014-5

This year plan contains details of undergraduate lectures, graduate classes, and other regular events. It is split
into sections along these lines.
The three columns on the right are used to indicate in which University term(s) each event takes place. The
number of lectures or classes for that event in any term is found in the column for that term. (NB: the numbers
for lectures/classes represent the hours allotted to the series, which may but need not be the same as the
number of lectures/classes. For seminars etc, the number given is the number of events.)
You will find other useful information regarding lectures and classes, including a summary of which
classes/lectures are obligatory for certain student groups.
This information is believed correct as at 2 April 2015, but changes may occur before and during the academic
year. Before you make plans for any particular term, it is wise to check the lecture lists online as near to the start
of term as is practical for your planning.
Errors/queries can be addressed to enquiries@philosophy.ox.ac.uk.
