Owl of Minerva Coin


The South Carolina Society for Philosophy was founded to serve the interests and needs of philosophy students and professionals around the State of South Carolina. We meet once a year, generally sometime in February or early March, at various universities or colleges around the state (usually rotating the meeting location from year to year among coastal, midlands, and upstate campuses). At this yearly conference, there are usually some special sessions with invited speakers, but the bulk of the sessions are based on submitted papers. There are no annual dues, but members pay a registration fee to attend the annual meeting. Recently we have been holding joint meetings every other year with the North Carolina Philosophy Society, alternating meetings between South Carolina and North Carolina locations.
