Institute For Research In Philosophy (IRIP) (Persian: مؤسسه پژوهشی حکمت و فلسفه ایران , formerly Imperial Iranian Academy of Philosophy) is a public research institute in Iran.


It was founded in September 1974 by Hossein Nasr, a Professor of History of Science and Philosophy at University of Tehran who also served for several years as President of Sharif University of Technology in Iran. He was also the first president of it. The university was the first academic institution to be founded upon the principles of philosophical Traditionalism.

William Chittick, who is renowned scholar of Sufi thought, literature and Islamic philosophy, completed his PhD in Persian literature at Tehran University in 1974. He then taught comparative religion at the Humanities Department at Sharif University and left Iran just before the revolution in 1979. He was also for a short period before the revolution, an assistant professor at it. He has also served as assistant editor of Encyclopædia Iranica, and is currently professor of Religious Studies at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. Dr. Chittick has had collaborations with Seyyed Hossein Nasr, and Allameh Tabatabaei on several important projects.
