ACU has established the Institute for Philosophy to achieve a world-leading position for philosophical research in the analytic tradition.

We aspire to excellence in the central areas of philosophical inquiry, including metaphysics, epistemology, ethics and metaethics, logic, social and political philosophy, aesthetics, history of philosophy, and the philosophy of mind, language, religion and science.

With a dedicated focus on research, we emphasise productive collaboration with an international community of scholars and institutions.

We play an important role in furthering ACU’s commitment to philosophy, as central to the University’s Mission. The institute will be based at the Melbourne Campus.
