The International Society for Philosophers was formed in 2002. Our aim is to bring together philosophy students and teachers, and amateur and professional philosophers from all over the world.
The mission of the ISFP is to "teach the world to philosophize." "We believe in freedom of thought and expression but also in the responsibility that goes with that freedom." (ISFP Mission Statement).
The Board of the ISFP is responsible for examining essay portfolios and dissertations submitted for the ISFP Associate and Fellowship Awards, and for overseeing and accrediting the online programs of the Pathways School of Philosophy.
The ISFP publishes the electronic journals, Philosophy Pathways and Philosophy for Business, and runs online conferences for Pathways students and ISFP members.
On 1st October 2014, there were 1921 ISFP members in 91 countries.
