The Center

Established in 2007, The Saul Kripke Center houses the archives of Professor Saul A. Kripke, one of our most distinguished philosophers and logicians, who has made significant and wide-ranging contributions to set theory, modal logic, mathematical logic and philosophy.

The Center is currently creating a digital archive to preserve Professor Kripke’s works, including recordings of lectures and seminars dating back to 1970, and lecture notes, manuscripts, and philosophical and mathematical correspondence dating back to the 1950s. The Center sponsors graduate fellowships for students enrolled in the CUNY Graduate Center’s Ph.D Program in Philosophy. The Center also makes its archive available for visiting scholars and hosts regular “brown-bag lunch” talks as well as colloquia by distinguished Kripke Scholars.

The establishment of the Saul Kripke Center was made possible by generous founding contributions by Rabbi Myer Kripke and the City University of New York.
