The American Catholic Philosophical Association (ACPA)
ABOUT THE AMERICAN CATHOLIC PHILOSOPHICAL ASSOCIATION
History and Purpose
The ACPA is a non-profit organization established in 1926 to promote the advancement of philosophy as an intellectual discipline consonant with Catholic tradition. Through its various activities the ACPA strives to develop philosophical scholarship, improve the teaching of philosophy, and communicate with other individuals and groups with similar aims. Membership is open to anyone who shares these objectives.
The ACPA holds a conference each year, with a program of papers and formal comments, and the associations's annual business meeting. Papers submitted for presentation at the conferences are blind-refereed. Each conference is held in a different location in the U.S. or Canada.
The ACPA sponsors a number of publications, including:
American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly, Volume 64 (1990) to the present
The New Scholasticism, Volumes 1-63 (1927-1989)
Philosophical Studies of the American Catholic Philosophical Association, 3 volumes
Proceedings of the American Catholic Philosophical Association, Volume 1 (1926) to the present
All members receive online access to these publications as a benefit of membership.
