The Cambridge Platonists were a group of English seventeenth-century . One difference between the Cambridge Platonists and their more famous philosophical contemporaries is that they all had a theological background

The Cambridge Platonists were a group of English seventeenth-century thinkers associated with the University of Cambridge. The most important philosophers among them were Henry More (1614–1687) and Ralph Cudworth (1617–1688), both fellows of Christ's College, Cambridge. One difference between the Cambridge Platonists and their more famous philosophical contemporaries is that they all had a theological background. Nevertheless, convinced of the compatibility of reason and faith, they regarded philosophy as the legitimate concern of theologians and are distinguished by the high value they accorded human reason.

The Cambridge Platonists were a group of theologians and philosophers at the University of Cambridge in the middle of the 17th century. The leading figures were Ralph Cudworth, Nathaniel Culverwell, Benjamin Whichcote, and Henry More. Mark Goldie, writing in the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, notes that the term "Cambridge Platonists" was given in the 19th century and can be misleading. There is no clear distinction between the group and latitudinarians in general.

Jon Norris (1657-1711) was a prolific author who showed mystical tendencies and a leaning towards Platonism from early on at Oxford. He published a dozen books and pamplets during his lifetime including many on religious topics. However, he was deeply involved in philosophical issues too, and he is arguably the last great Idealist figure in the line of thinkers stemming from the Cambridge Platonists. He was involved in discussions with Mary Astell and Lady Masham over the love of God, and with Berkeley he is probably the most important English thinker to be strongly influenced by Malebranche. The most systematic of Norris's books philosophically is "An Essay Towards the Theory of the Ideal or Intelligible World" (1701-1704), a mixture of Platonism and Malebranche Cartesianism. This work also discusses Locke's "Essay" with which Norris disagreed on several counts, and in the third edition of his "Christiam Blessedness" (1694), Norris rejected Locke's suggestions on innate ideas. One of his last works, "Philosophical Discourse Concerning the Natural Immortality of the Soul" (1708), was written against materialists and atheists who appeared to doubt the immortality of the soul. Writing during a time of intellectual turmoil after the Civil War, this was a time of complete break with the classical Aristotlean traditions when new ideas and systems wre fighting for attention. While the ideas of Locke held out and Malebranche came to be largely ignored outside of France, this is nonetheless an important collection of philosophical writings from an early critic of Locke, whose ideas had impact on the thinking of Shaftesbury, Reid and Hume.
