The Cambridge Centre for the Study of Platonism

 
Scholar in Residence - Prof. Dr. Thomas Hanke

Michaelmas 2017-Lent 2019

Professor Thomas Hanke is based at Sankt Georgen Graduate School for Philosophy and Theology, Frankfurt. His research focuses on the period of the so-called classical German philosophy in the decades around 1800. He has published on Kant and Hegel in particular.

 

Professor Hanke has been collaborating closely with members of the Cambridge Centre for the Study of Platonism since Michaelmas term 2017. Drawing on the facilities of the Centre, he has dedicated his current research to the issue whether and to what extent the thought of the Cambridge Platonists might have had an impact on some of the German Idealists. 

 

Thanks to a funding by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), Professor Hanke is present in Cambridge during Lent term 2019. Together with Professor Hedley and Dr Mihai, he runs a Seminar, which focuses on passages from Hegel’s lectures on the history of philosophy and on the philosophy of religion, comparing them with passages from Ralph Cudworth’s masterpiece The True Intellectual System of the Universe.
