Institute for Religion & Critical Inquiry

Critical conversations in philosophy, theology, religion, history, and literature.

Focusing on philosophy and religious thought and practice from antiquity to the present day, the IRCI promotes collaborative research on religion and philosophy from multiple disciplinary perspectives in an international context. Our researchers explore the inter-relationships that religion and philosophy have with their cultural and intellectual contexts, and in so doing contribute to contemporary theological, philosophical, ethical, and political debates. The Institute’s aim is to advance understanding of our world and to imagine ways to improve it.
