Launched in 2019, the Princeton Project in Philosophy and Religion (PPPR) is an initiative of the University Center for Human Values (UCHV), in cooperation with the Departments of Philosophy and Religion at Princeton.
PPPR brings together an interdisciplinary group of students and scholars who share a research interest in the philosophy of religion, broadly construed. The scope (“broadly construed”) is intentionally open-ended: we include not only the philosophy of religion as it is typically practiced by analytic philosophers, but also, among other things, the history of philosophical thinking about religion, theories and methods in the study of religion, the philosophical study of non-western religious traditions, and religious ethics.
PPPR is directed by Andrew Chignell, Laurance S. Rockefeller Professor with appointments in Religion, Philosophy, and the UCHV. It includes a number of other faculty members and postdoctoral fellows, and is supported by faculty friends and collaborators in the Departments of Religion, Philosophy, Psychology, and the University Center for Human Values.
PPPR currently sponsors postdoctoral fellowships. The deadline for this year's applications is November 18, 2019. External faculty who are interested in spending a year at Princeton associated with the Project are encouraged to apply for the Laurance S. Rockefeller Visiting Faculty Fellowship program at the UCHV
