Former Committees

At its meeting in November 2017, the APA board of officers reviewed the association’s committee structure and, in particular, the role of three specific committees: Philosophy and Computers, Philosophy and Law, and Philosophy and Medicine.

In the APA committee structure, committees are created to address pressing issues in the profession; as those issues evolve, the need for particular committees may change. As such, the board periodically reviews all non-standing committees and considers how they continue to serve their own charges and the association’s broader mission and whether annually recruiting the labor-power of volunteers to staff these committees continues to be warranted.

 Former Committees

Philosophy and Computers

Committee Charge

The committee works to provide forums for discourse devoted to the critical and creative examination of the role of information, computation, computers, and other computationally enabled technologies (such as robots). The committee endeavors to use that discourse not only to enrich philosophical research and pedagogy, but to reach beyond philosophy to enrich other discourses, both academic and non-academic.

The committee also publishes the Newsletter on Philosophy and Computers, the editor of which serves in an ex officio capacity on this committee.

In addition, this committee awards the Barwise Prize, which is given on a yearly basis for significant and sustained contributions to areas relevant to philosophy and computing.
