The Centre for Philosophy of Natural and Social Science (CPNSS) is an interdisciplinary research centre at the London School of Economics and Political Science. The CPNSS was established in 1990 and aims to promote research into philosophical, methodological and foundational questions arising in the natural and the social sciences, as well as their application to practical problems.

The CPNSS supports interdisciplinary and inter-institutional research and maintains international collaborations and partnerships. It is home to a number of research projects that bring together academics from different backgrounds, and it hosts researchers pursuing individual research initiatives. The CPNSS also hosts a visitors' programme through which researchers are able to visit the Centre for a term or an academic year to participate in existing projects and pursue their own research.

Its current director is Professor Roman Frigg.

  • Rom Harré (Former Director)
  • Nancy Cartwright (Former Director)
  • Helena Cronin (Co-Director)
  • Michael Redhead (Co-Director)
