Discovery: 200 years of the Cambridge Philosophical Society

Fri 8 March 2019 - Sat 31 August 2019

Cambridge University Library

Founded in 1819, the Cambridge Philosophical Society provided an open forum for Cambridge graduates to discuss current scientific ideas and present new research. Over the last 200 years, the Cambridge Philosophical Society has played a key role in raising the profile of Cambridge’s most significant developments in natural science.

Darwin’s theory of evolution; Newton’s laws of motion; Cambridge’s first Nobel Prizewinner, Lord Rayleigh’s seminal work on wave propagation, interference and diffraction; all can be traced through the archives of the Cambridge Philosophical Society. This exhibition shows us how the activity of the Cambridge Philosophical Society underpins 200 years of discovery.

Mon - Fri open from 09.00-18.30
Sat open from 09.00-16.30
Sun - closed
