the times world university rankings - arts & humanities (inc. philosophy)

This is relevant for choosing my replacements for the 'Electric Company' and 'Waterworks' on my Philosophy Monopoly board. As the board is highly inspired by Western Philosophy (with the exception of Guttama Buddha), it seems logical to choose the best American and the best British university in 'Arts & Humanities' here.


I could not find any up to date university world ranking tables. And especially none that specifically had a league table of philosophy schools around the world! As philosophy fits into 'Arts & Humanities' this is very fitting and current for the spaces on the board.


It is clear that the highest ranking universities from American and the UK are:


U.K. = OXFORD UNIVERSITY
AMERICA = HARVARD UNIVERSITY


These will be the 'Electric Company' and 'Waterworks' on my Philosophy Monopoly board, respectively.




Be seeing you!
