Boston, MA
17-19 June, 2019, 9 am-6:35 pm


The Society for the Study of the History of Analytical Philosophy is an international organization aimed at promoting discussion in all areas of scholarship concerning the development of philosophical logic, philosophy of language, the philosophy of mind, metaphysics, the philosophy of science and epistemology. It welcomes scholars interested in the many ways in which the disciplines were influenced by thinkers such as Bolzano, Brentano and his school, Husserl, Frege, Russell, Wittgenstein, the Vienna Circle, American Pragmatism, Carnap, Quine, Tarski and the Polish school, for instance, but also seeks to promote work engaging with lesser known figures and trends.


SSHAP contributes sessions at the meeting of the Central and Pacific divisions of the American Philosophical Associations. Call for Papers and Symposia are published on the website and main distribution lists. Membership is open to all academic philosophers and is free. In order to apply for membership, simply join online.
