Closing Discussion .


The Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy (CRMEP) is the leading centre for postgraduate level study and doctoral research in Continental Philosophy in the London area. Since its inception in 1994 it has developed a national and international reputation for teaching, research and publication in the field of post-Kantian European philosophy, characterised by a strong emphasis on broad cultural and intellectual contexts and a distinctive sense of social and political engagement. The CRMEP moved to Kingston University from Middlesex University in the summer of 2010. It is located across the faculties of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) and Art, Design and Architecture (FADA).
