The centre aims to create a space for rigorous intellectual dialogue and production which aligns with a trans-disciplinary orientation of philosophy, challenging rigid divisions between analytic and Continental, the contemporary and the historical, the theoretical and the practical, while emphasizing historically marginalised areas of investigation.
