UNIVERSITY PROGRAMMES / RESEARCH CENTRES / RESEARCH PROJECTS

I have attempted to list, according to their geographic location, programmes with a demonstrable and, in many cases, self-advertised orientation towards Continental philosophy.  Given that much Continental philosophy is done outside of traditional departments of philosophy, I have also listed programmes in Critical Theory, etc. with a decidedly Continental orientation.  In some cases, I have listed other departments (marked with an *) which, though not exclusively Continental in orientation, have noticeable strengths in this area. 

I have not attempted to rank programmes in Continental philosophy.  The rankings of programmes in Kant and German Idealism, Nineteenth Century Continental Philosophy After Hegel, and Contemporary Continental Philosophy offered by the Philosophical Gourmet Report can be misleading in that programmes with notable strengths in this area (e.g. New School University or the University of Essex) have in the past sometimes been left out or ranked very lowly in favour of others (e.g. Oxford University) where the emphasis is decidedly not Continental but where there may be a good philosopher or two (e.g. Grahame Lock or Michael Rosen) working in the area.  The criteria employed by the Report have been the subject of great controversy among philosophers.  It should be pointed out, however, that the most recent edition of the Report, given the installation of an editorial board comprising specialists in the area, seems more balanced.
