Casimir Lewy Library

Welcome to the Casimir Lewy Library

Our webpages and LibGuide will be updated over the coming weeks in readiness for the new academic year.  Check back at the start of term for details of the services we will be offering in light of the ongoing COVID-19 situation.

The Casimir Lewy Library provides support for philosophical study, teaching and research in Cambridge. The book collection comprises more than 17,000 volumes, focusing on Western analytic philosophy. The Library provides a pleasant, quiet study environment, with friendly library staff to help you make the most of the resources available.

The Library is named after Casimir Lewy (1919-1991), University Reader and fellow of Trinity College. He was an inspirational teacher, whose passion for clear thinking and logical rigour still echoes through the Faculty.

See our LibGuide for more information about Philosophy collections available in Cambridge.
