Purpose: Since postgraduate students are expected to be well acquainted with contemporary philosophical trends, this paper is a study of the basics of important streams in contemporary Philosophy. The paper consists of a survey of important contemporary trends, and an in depth study of a number of important contemporary contributions. We approach this topic via a close study of a number of important figures in twentieth century Philosophy. Students are invited to choose up to three figures for an in-depth critical appraisal. The particular philosophers presented each year will depend on which members of staff are available to teach on the course.
