SSHAP 2016 (Denver) – Call For Papers

The fifth annual conference of the Society for the Study of the History of Analytical Philosophy will be held in Denver, Colorado 16-18 June 2016. It is locally organised by Sean Morris and funded by the Philosophy Department at Metropolitan State University Denver.

Invited Speakers:

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

Previous conferences have been held at McMaster University, Indiana University, Université du Québec à Montréal and Trinity College Dublin.


SSHAP invites submissions for its 2016 annual conference. Paper submissions in all areas of the history of analytic philosophy are welcome.

A selection of papers from the conference will be published in a special volume of the Journal for the History of Analytical Philosophy. (
