European Society for Analytic Philosophy

The main aim of the European Society for Analytic Philosophy (ESAP) is to try and bring together, at a European level, the different national groups of analytic philosophers in the hope that these will lead to new contacts and collaboration.

ESAP organises the European Congresses of Analytic Philosophy (ECAP) on a regular basis, allowing European analytic philosophers to meet and come to know each other, issues a newsletter and other publications of general interest; and facilitates the organisation of European conferences and workshops on specific subjects within analytic philosophy.
