The Japan Society for the Promotion of Science has awarded a multi-year grant "Living Ideas: Dynamic Philosophies of Life and Matter, 1650–1850", which the Centre is collaborating in.

The Japan Society for the Promotion of Science is awarding a multi-year grant to "Living Ideas: Dynamic Philosophies of Life and Matter, 1650–1850", an international project running in collaboration with the Cambridge Centre for the Study of Platonism. The project will study how dynamic philosophies from the Cambridge Platonists, through thinkers including Shaftesbury, Herder, and Kant, to post-Kantians such as Schelling, Hegel, and S. T. Coleridge, understood the existence, development, and variegated phenomena of matter and biological life from their respective, often inter-related, metaphysically idealist perspectives.  

Principle Investigator: Dr Peter Cheyne; the research team consists of around 25 international, interdisciplinary project members including Centre director Prof. Douglas Hedley and Fellow Dr Adrian Mihai.
