2020 Joint Session of the Aristotelian Society and the Mind Association | University of Kent

The Joint Session is the premier UK general philosophy conference, held annually during the summer by the Aristotelian Society and the Mind Association. It has taken place at nearly every major university across the United Kingdom and in Ireland.

Since 1910, the Joint Session has grown to become the largest gathering of philosophers in the country, attracting prestigious UK and international speakers working in a broad range of philosophical areas. Inaugurated by the incoming President of the Mind Association, the Joint Session includes symposia, open and postgradaute sessions, and a range of satellite conferences.

The 95th Joint Session of the Aristotelian Society and the Mind Association will be held at the University of Hertfordshire from 16 to 18 July 2021.
