I'm a year 12 student currently thinking about applying to LSE to study PHilosophy with Economics or Politics. I've been researching the courses for a bit of time now, but there are a few questions which I think will be best to ask students who have studied/ are studying these subjects at LSE, and I would really appreciate your help
First of all, there's a bit I'd like to ask about the philosophy side. Judging from the module titles I've seen, the emphasis seems to be placed on the rational/practical/scientific side of philosophy, and less so on things like epistemology and metaphysics which are a bit more abstract. Is that just my misconception, or is it more orientated to practical use since the course are BSc course?
Another question I'd like to ask is about the workload and amount of time in lectures. How many lectures/seminars/assignments do you get, on average, per week? (I'd like a bit of spare time to go around london!)
Thanks in advance guys, your responses are appreciated!
