Dr Adrian Mihai

Newton International Fellow

Fellow of the Cambridge Centre for the Study of Platonism


Dr Adrian Mihai is a Newton International Fellow (British Academy) in the Faculty of Divinity, and his research has run from the early Greek philosophers to the Cambridge Platonists, with some personal and intellectual interests in hermeneutics and its relation to phenomenology.

Furthermore, as collaborator on the International projects 'The Cambridge Platonists at the Origins of Enlightenment' and 'Reason and Revelation: The Critical Heritage of Antiquity', his work focuses on the chief ways in which Greek and Latin influence has moulded the philosophy, the theology and the science of Modern Times. He is also a Research Associate at the 'Laboratoire d'études sur les monothéismes' (LEM-CNRS, Paris).

Dr Mihai studied Ancient Philosophy at École Pratique des Hautes Études (EPHE, Paris), with Professor Philippe Hoffmann, and he is the author of 'L'Hadès céleste. Histoire du purgatoire dans l'Antiquité' (Paris: Garnier, 2015), for which he was awarded the prestigious 'Prix de l'Association des études grecques'. From 2014 to 2016, Dr Mihai was a SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow in the Faculty of Philosophy at Laval University, under the supervision of Dr Jean-Marc Narbonne.

He is currently preparing the first critical edition of Ralph Cudworth's 1678 treatise, 'The True Intellectual System of the Universe', a daring interpretation of Ancient philosophy and religion, particularly of Atomism.
