The American Philosophical Association was founded in 1900 to promote the exchange of ideas among philosophers, to encourage creative and scholarly activity in philosophy, to facilitate the professional work and teaching of philosophers and to represent philosophy as a discipline.
Having grown from a few hundred members to over 10,000, the American Philosophical Association is one of the largest philosophical societies in the world and the only American philosophical society not devoted to a particular school or philosophical approach.
The Society of Christian Philosophers was organized in 1978 to promote fellowship among Christian Philosophers and to stimulate study and discussion of issues which arise from their Christian and philosophical commitments. One of its chief aims is to go beyond the usual philosophy of religion sessions at the American Philosophical Association and to stimulate thinking about the nature and role of Christian commitment in philosophy.
The Ohio Philosophical Association has existed as a section of the Ohio College Association since 1931. The College Association was founded in 1867.
The Ohio Philosophical Association has as its purpose the encouragement of "research in philosophy in the colleges and universities in Ohio." The membership comprises all those who teach philosophy in institutions which are members of the Ohio College Association and those who are members of this Association at the age of retirement.
Phi Sigma Tau is the International Honor Society in Philosophy. Founded in 1930 and incorporated as a nonprofit corporation in 1955, the Society now has a network of over 200 chapters throughout the United States and Canada, at both public and private institutions of higher learning. The purpose of Phi Sigma Tau is to encourage interest and activity among students and to promote ties between philosophy departments in accredited institutions.

Members of the Ashland Philosophy Club are interested in philosophy, getting together, eating pizza, watching the occasional movie, and getting into existential trouble. If you don't believe us, just ask...
Meetings are commonly held twice a month during the semester. We also conduct our traditional Socrates Café discussions (called Soccafés, for short), like to host movie nights and participate in the occasional Phil Core Brannigan (the existential trouble we just mentioned above).
To find out about our schedule please watch for fliers on campus, click on the link above, or you can email one of the officers to get on the email list.
Everyone and anyone is welcome, no philosophy background necessary.

October is upon us. Black cats, bats, ghosts, and broomsticks adorn every shop window and school art project. Pumpkins take their places on porches and doorsteps. Humongous bags of bite-sized candies beckon from special grocery store displays. Aside from costumes and calories, what can we gain from the ancient Celtic festival marking the start of the cold, dark season? Philosophical insight, that's what! For this month's "From the Archive", our friends at Philoso?hy Talk have gathered a collection of Halloween-related episodes to help you ponder the deeper side of this sugar-laden day.
