Philosophy of Medicine: the Boundaries of Illness

The Wellcome Trust awarded £1.95 million for 2009-14 to the School of Arts & Humanities for research in Medical Humanities, resulting in the creation of the Centre for Humanities & Health. The Boundaries of Illness project, led by Professor MM McCabe, Professor David Papineau and Dr David Galloway, is one of six groups involved in this project.


Statistical Models of Grammaticality (formerly The Probabilistic Representation of Knowledge)

The ESRC has awarded Shalom Lappin a Professorial Fellowship for research on the probabilistic representation of linguistic knowledge. The project will focus on the development of an enriched stochastic language model that incorporates a function which generates graded grammaticality judgements for sentences.


Word Meaning: What it is and what it is not?

Funded by an AHRC grant, the project will develop a positive proposal for how we are to envisage word meaning and will critically consider the theoretical constructs already present in the literature.


Self-Control and the Person: An Inter-Disciplinary Account: Team Control

The goal of the project is to develop and test a novel account of how we achieve self-control, in part through developing a novel account of the person and exploring its implications for self-control.


Ancient Commentators on Aristotle

The Ancient Commentators on Aristotle project began in 1985 under the direction of Richard Sorabji and aims to translate the principal Greek commentaries on Aristotle into English for the first time (along with a number of related philosophical texts from late antiquity).  


Dynamic Syntax Research Group

Dynamic Syntax is a grammar formalism designed to reflect directly the time-linear dimension of natural language processing.  Development of the framework has been funded by ESRC, EPSRC, Leverhulme and AHRC.

Natural Philosophy in the Islamic World (including the History of Philosophy: Without Any Gaps podcast)

Funded by the Leverhulme Trust, this project - led by Professor Peter Adamson - explores texts from the Islamic world (in Syriac as well as Arabic) dealing with this range of topics, asking what advances were made in natural philosophy, determining how natural philosophy was conceived, and improving our knowledge of the tradition through improved texts and translations.

Included as part of this project has been the highly-successful 'History of Philosophy: without any gaps' podcast.
