Competition and Competitiveness

We’re looking for a PhD student in Philosophy to join the research team of the Competition and Competitiveness Project (CCP). The CCP is based in the School of Philosophy and Art History at the University of Essex. It is funded by a Leverhulme Trust Research Leadership Award and will run for four years.

The aim of this project is to develop a comprehensive understanding of the different forms of competition and competitiveness and the role they play in a wide range of social practices and institutions (markets, science, sports). Competition and competitiveness are poorly understood but rarely submitted to detailed analysis. We hope to change the conversation in (political) philosophy, making a more realistic conception of human nature and social processes the basis of normative arguments and offering a nuanced view of when competition is appropriate.

Lead Department: School of Philosophy and Art History

Closing date: 6 September 2021
