King’s College London is one of the top 5 research centres for philosophy in the country. We do work in many different areas of philosophy, including some that are rarely tackled in other departments. An excellent example is the work we do in Medieval Philosophy.
Prof Maria Rosa Antognazza has just been elected Chair of the British Society of the History of Philosophy, while Sacha Golob has been appointed Associate Editor (with special responsibility for Post-Kantian Philosophy) of the British Journal for the History of Philosophy, the journal of the Society.
The Journal is based at King’s. It continues to be edited by King’s Professor, Michael Beaney.
King’s College London is one of the top 5 research centres for philosophy in the country. It is also one of the top departments in the UK for Ancient Philosophy.

A one-day conference organized in association with Peter Adamson’s History of Philosophy without Gaps project at King’s College London brought together a number of acclaimed scholars to discuss the relationship between religion and philosophy in a variety of traditions across the globe. How is philosophical thought influenced by religious views and practice in different cultures and civilizations? How did the relationship between the two develop throughout ages in different parts of the world? How do philosophical and theological arguments differ or relate?
