There are lists up on DUO, but none of them say what to read before you go. I think K+R gives some suggestions (3 books) to read before you go and E+V says they don't expect you to read any books, but if you do there are some suggestions. I may get one or two of the Reading Philosophy module's books just to have a look through.

I heard if you don't finish Anti-Oedipus by Deleuze and Guattari by the time you arrive they don't let you start the course :nope:
:lies:

But you do have to read it before while you're here otherwise they won't let you graduate :yep:

For E+V get Singer's Companion to Ethics. It is very very good.

For K+R, I'm not sure you really need much at this point. You will be going through a few big key texts; all of which are out of copyright so you can read them online.

But really, for both, go to Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. Read their entries on utilitarianism, consequentialism, Kantian ethics, virtue ethics (Aristotle), and then the relevant ones for K+R (forget them now... like Locke's ideas on substance, Hume on induction, Descartes)... If you spend some time reading all those articles on Stanford, you will be in excellent stead when you start at Durham.

Deleuze and Guattari is amateur arkbar. Try Phenomenology of Sprit.
