Founded in 1993, the Philosophy of Time Society (PTS) promotes the study of the philosophy of time from a broad analytic perspective. It grew out of an NEH Seminar on the Philosophy of Time that George Schlesinger organized in 1991. The PTS collaborates with the Centre for Time in Australia and the Center for Philosophy of Time in Italy as part of the International Association for the Philosophy of Time (IAPT). The primary purpose of the IAPT is the organization of an annual conference on the philosophy of time, the venue of which rotates between Europe, Australasia, and North America. The next meeting of the IAPT will take place in Sydney in June 2015; Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC (USA) will host the conference in the summer of 2016.
The PTS also hosts three annual meetings in conjunction with the divisional meetings of the American Philosophical Association (APA). Click on the “Meetings” and “Call for Papers” tabs to find out about upcoming meetings.
