“I was one of those people who knew they wanted to pursue a career in academic philosophy before they really understood what it involved. What Reading helped me with was to show me what a fantastic philosophical environment can look like, with engaged students and brilliant teachers, who have a strong willingness to help students do as well as they possibly can. All of my teachers inspired me to continue to pursue my dream of being an academic philosopher, helping me understand the nature of Philosophy and academia in the UK, in general.”
“I received an exceptional education in Philosophy at Reading. Most importantly, I found role models for how to be a brilliant teacher, colleague, and mentor in members of the Department that I hope to emulate in my own career.”
