The LOGOS Research Centre was set up in 2001 to develop collaborative research projects into the systems of knowledge by which Greeks and Romans organised their understanding and description of the world.

Members of the Centre bring together expertise, and an impressive research track record, in the study of science and religion, of legal, mathematical, aesthetic and philosophical modes of thought, and in historiographical and hermeneutic traditions of writing. A special focus of common interest is the means by which writing and the production of texts were employed to create elaborate intellectual systems in antiquity. Alongside our philological concerns with texts of this kind, we are also committed to situating these systems of knowledge in relation to systems of power. Some of us are currently at work on projects explicitly exploring the relationships between ancient imperialisms and ancient thought. Others are engaged on research on complex philosophical and quasi-philosophical texts.

The Centre is designed to foster closer collaboration between these activities, and sponsor new initiatives. LOGOS is based in the School of Classics and functions with the participation of academic staff from Divinity, English, International Relations and Philosophy, together with members of other Schools whose interests include the ancient world.
