The Keeling Centre for Ancient Philosophy

The Keeling Centre for Ancient Philosophy in the Philosophy Department at UCL is the home of activities and events that focus on ancient philosophy.

There is an annual lecture and a colloquium every 2-4 years, and a senior academic is appointed as the Keeling Scholar in Residence (currently Prof. MM McCabe).

The Keeling Centre also offers graduate scholarships for research in ancient philosophy, and hosts visitors specialising in the field.

The Keeling Centre is made possible by an anonymous donor, whose generous bequest in honour of S.V. Keeling aimed to promote the study of ancient philosophy at UCL, and in London.
