Rigorous intervention in the public arena aims to extend the practice of philosophy beyond its academic boundaries. Our work falls into three key areas. The Critical Theory and Radical Politics Research Group draw on contemporary critical theoretical work, with a broadly post-foundationalist perspective. Social Movements and Radical Global Politics brings emerging and established researchers examining different aspects of societies' engagement with authorities and the radical solutions that come through counteractively and protest. Our third strand focuses on philosophy’s contribution to public and political debate around political and moral issues.
The Centre is open both to collaborative proposals, whether small- or large-scale, and to proposals to join CAPPE as a Visiting Fellow from periods between one-week and a year. Anyone interested in working with us should contact the two Directors, Prof Bob Brecher: firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr Mark Devenney: email@example.com
