CAP (Centre for Art and Philosophy) is an interdisciplinary research platform based at the Department of Philosophy at the Erasmus University Rotterdam. Most of its members have been or are still working at the department as lecturers, researchers or affiliates.

CAP has been founded by Henk Oosterling and Awee Prins as the Dutch Centrum voor Filosofie en Kunst (CFK) in 1992. The research platform and its international network of friends organizes and contributes to symposia, seminars and conferences. It also actively supports discursive strategies and problem analyses on policy level. Next to national and international magazines, art catalogues, journals and books, results have been published in Rotterdam Philosophical Studies and the CFK-series InterAkta and CFKj.

Over the years CAP has developed several fields of research such as Intermedialities, Dasein as Design, Urban Reflections, Philosophy and Literature, Aesthetics and Culture, Digital Aesthetics and, more recently, Speculative Art Theory.
