In the summer of 2015 the Department of Philosophy at Trinity College Dublin will host the fourth annual meeting of the Society for the Study of the History of Analytical Philosophy (SSHAP) in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Bertrand Russell Society (BRS). The local organisers for these meetings are James Levine (Philosophy) and Peter Simons (Philosophy) for the SSHAP and Peter Stone (Political Science) for the BRS. Details about both of these conferences, including Calls for Papers can be found below.

4–6 June 2015

The Society for the 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 and Brentano and his school, Husserl, Frege, Russell, Wittgenstein, the Vienna Circle, Tarski and the Polish School, for instance, but also seeks to promote work engaging with lesser known figures and trends.

5–7 June 2015

Keynote Speaker

AC Grayling

The Bertrand Russell Society (BRS is an international organization dedicated to the memory of the philosopher Bertrand Russell.

Call for Papers

We wilcome papers on any aspect of Russell’s life, thought, work, and legacy. We also welcome proposals for other activities that might be appropriate for the meeting (e.g., a master class on an essay by/about Russell).

Call for Papers for the 2015 meeting of the Bertrand Russell Society.
The BRS will be meeting in Dublin in 2015. We meet at Trinity College, June 5 – 7. This annual gathering promises to be very exciting. Not only will members of the society have the opportunity to partake in rich conservations on Russell’s thought, we will also have the opportunity to explore the ideas of Bertie’s colleagues with members of The Society for the Study of the History of Analytic Philosophy, who will hold their meeting at the same time.
If you are working on a paper on Russell’s thought or life, or if you have ideas on the possibility of doing so, please let me know. Perhaps you are interesting in hosting a master class on a interesting text from Russell. If so, contact me and we can go from there.
As news about the meeting filters in, I will pass the information on to the members. Details of the meeting and abstracts of the papers that are accepted for the meeting will be posted on this web site.
Alan Schwerin
President of the BRS
