International Society for Neoplatonic Studies (ISNS)

The mission of the International Society for Neoplatonic Studies is to promote the study of the philosophy of Plato and its long tradition from all perspectives. Since its formation in 1973 the ISNS has grown in both size and influence, with members now in Europe, Australia, Asia, and the Americas. Its work is broadly focused on Plato's writings and their interpretation by his student Aristotle through to their continuing influence in the 21st century. This includes philosophical, historical, and literary perspectives on this tradition as well as Pagan, Christian, Jewish, Islamic and other religious interpretations. The Society organizes annual summer conferences, and supports other conferences and panels throughout the year.

ISNS members have the option of subscribing to The International Journal of the Platonic Tradition. This biannual journal is published under the society's auspices by Brill Academic Publishers. The subscription upgrade includes a print copy of the journal or online access through Brill.
