The Keele-Oxford-St Andrews Kantian Research Centre.
Director: Professor Sorin Baiasu
The Keele-Oxford-St Andrews Kantian Research Centre is a research centre for philosophy, located at Keele University and led by philosophers at Keele, Oxford University and University of St Andrews. The Centre builds on Keele’s prominent place in the UK and Europe in the area of Kantian studies; Keele University is one of the main centres of activities of the UK Kant Society and of the Kantian Standing Group of the European Consortium for Political Research. The Centre was officially launched in 2015.
The *Kantian* character of the Centre is not to be understood in a dogmatic way as entirely concerned with research on the works of the German philosopher Immanuel Kant (1724-1804), but as referring to research which acknowledges (even when only critically) the significant role of Kant in the history of philosophy. As such, the Centre encourages, promotes and supports interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary work, including critical, exegetical, reconstructive and applied philosophical investigations, of both historical and systematic character.
