The Society for 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, the Vienna Circle, Tarski and the Polish school, for instance, but also seeks to promote work engaging with lesser know figures and trends.


Previous conferences have been held at Indiana University, the University of Calgary, Université du Québec à Montréal, Metropolitan State University Denver, and Trinity College Dublin.





SSHAP invites submissions for its 2018 annual conference. Paper submissions in all areas of the history of analytic philosophy are welcome.


A selection of papers from the conference will be published in a special volume of the Journal for the History of Analytical Philosophy. (


SUBMISSION DEADLINE: January 15, 2018.
