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.
Essays submitted by ISFP members for the six Pathways to Philosophy programs are evaluated by student peer review moderated by the Director of Studies.
The ISFP publishes the electronic journals, Philosophy Pathways and Philosophy for Business, and runs online conferences for Pathways students and ISFP members.
On 24th March 2015, there were 1944 ISFP members in 91 countries.
