Sarah Hutton has recently updated the article ‘The Cambridge Platonists’ on the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy website. Changes will take effect soon.
Robert Pasnau has carried out important recent work on the metaphysics of More and Conway. This work is an invaluable contribution to analysis of Cambridge Platonist positions.
