Brill's Studies in Intellectual History is a peer-reviewed book series that publishes new approaches to history, the history of philosophy and theology, and the history of ideas. Special attention is given to the use of interdisciplinary methods and insights, such as those of cultural anthropology, semiotics and linguistic analysis. Occasionally volumes will contain papers of eminent scholars and proceedings of conferences, which would otherwise be difficult to obtain.

Areas of PhD supervision
