Also an interesting email address! A simple Google of Oxford University
and philosophy picks up the following ac.uk address:

www.philosophy.ox.ac.uk/

Not as stated PHILOSOPHY.OXFORD.AC.UK

Curious!

I wouldn't say that in itself is conclusive, because people may use the
more common form in general 'speech' even when they know it's
technically a 'D.Phil.' at Oxford. However, a quick check on

http://www.theses.com/

shows no thesis at Oxford on this subject by an R. 'Price'.
