The Abraham Kuyper Center (AKC) is established in 2013 at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. The center is part of the department of Philosophy within the Faculty of Humanities.
Who we are
We aim to stimulate and facilitate the reflection on the big questions that scientific research raises, on a scientific level as well as in the public debate. We focus on academic research and we organise public lectures, discussions, and seminars for a broader audience about these themes. The goal of this is to stimulate academic and public debates about science and the big questions and to raise them to a higher level.
