The Hegel Society of America (HSA)
HISTORY OF THE HEGEL SOCIETY OF AMERICA
The Hegel Society of America was founded in 1968 at the Wofford Symposium in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Its purpose, as stated in its charter of incorporation as a learned society, is to promote the study of the philosophy of Hegel, its place within the history of thought, its relation to social, political, and cultural movements since his time, and its relevance to contemporary issues and fields of knowledge. The HSA meets every two years for three days. Each meeting features a program on a theme selected democratically at the previous meeting.
The HSA cooperates with the Hegel Society of Great Britain, the Internationale Hegel-Vereinigung, the Internationale Hegel-Gesellschaft, and the Centre de recherche et de documentation sur Hegel et sur Marx, and maintains close ties with the Hegel-Archiv at Ruhr Universität, Bochum, Germany. The HSA itself neither endorses nor prefers any particular way of interpreting Hegel.
The Owl of Minerva, the official journal of the HSA, appears each spring and fall as a journal of articles, reviews, discussions, translations, and bibliographical information.
