Last year, the APA appointed a task force on a code of conduct to explore whether such a code for professional philosophers is warranted. The task force concluded that it is, and at its meeting in November, the board of officers approved the task force’s recommendation to create that code.

The task force now seeks input from APA members as it develops a code of conduct for the APA. Please send your suggestions to

By submitting your ideas, you will be helping to establish a set of guidelines regarding the wide range of professional responsibilities of philosophers, especially those in which ethical challenges might arise. Thank you for participating in this important endeavor.

Best regards,
