Descartes Centre


The Descartes Centre distinguishes itself by its emphasis on the history and philosophy of all academic disciplines.

The Descartes Centre for the History and Philosophy of the Sciences and the Humanities is a joint collaboration of all seven Faculties at Utrecht University. The Descartes Centre contributes to the social and political debate by critically reflecting on the foundations and the dissemination of scientific knowledge and the role of rhetoric in these processes.
