Research programmes and projects

Cambridge Centre for the Study of Platonism

The Cambridge Centre for the Study of Platonism (CCSP) is a major research centre for the interdisciplinary study of Platonism. The centre functions as a community of researchers concerned with the legacy of Platonism, and brings some of the great scholars of Platonism to Cambridge to lecture on their work. The Centre actively encourages graduate students and postdoctoral researchers working on the Platonic tradition in any period. 

Cambridge Interfaith Programme (CIP)

The Cambridge Inter-Faith Programme was born in 2002 with the aim of pursuing research and public education projects that would:

  • bring together Jewish, Christian and Muslim participants, and others;
  • be responsible to the religious communities, to society more generally, and to the academic disciplines;
  • embed long-term inter-faith learning, collaboration and collegiality into Cambridge University and other institutions; and
  • emphasise face to face discussion and joint study and research, including study of each others scriptures.

Past Research Projects
