“Invest in the future of philosophy by financially supporting the APA”

As the end of the academic year approaches and we consider the association’s needs and goals for the coming year, I’m writing to remind you that the APA needs your support.

“The APA has been evolving very quickly in recent years. It has developed collaborative relations with specialized philosophical societies abroad, and professional societies in other disciplines. It has secured large grant funding to support diversity institutes, expanded the number of prizes, and continued to award small grants. The APA is doing more to support the teaching of philosophy, more to support public philosophy, more to support philosophy programs threatened with closure, and more to support our grad students who increasingly need to consider nonacademic careers. But there’s no getting around the need for funding. My most recent contribution was to the newly endowed Prize for Teaching Excellence. I encourage others to think about investing in the future of philosophy by financially supporting the APA.”
