The Whichcote Society, founded in Lent Term 2013, is a group for the reading and discussion of metaphysics, poetics and theology.
The Society is named in honour of Benjamin Whichcote, student and fellow of Emmanuel from 1626 until 1643, and tutor and intellectual father to the seventeenth-century thinkers known as the Cambridge Platonists.
