The Society for the Philosophical Study of Education (SPSE) is an international association that connects scholars who are interested in topics which approach the field of education from a philosophical perspective in the widest sense, such as:

SPSE was founded on November 10th, 1975 in Chicago and continues to host an annual conference. This society brings together a community of people who are enthusiastic about philosophically orientated topics related to education and encourages a thoughtful exchange of ideas in a welcoming environment.

SPSE also hosts a double-blind peer-reviewed journal, the Journal for the Philosophical Study of Education (JPSE).

SPSE Leadership:

Vice President: Elias Schwieler

We are proud that SPSE has become a truly international and diverse community of scholars in recent years! 
This environment has provided us with an opportunity to view topics related to philosophy of education from different perspectives and to think outside the box. 

In the course of time, the society has successively expanded from the Midwest of the USA to the whole of North America to the entire world. In the past two conferences (2021 and 2022) we had presenters from all continents of the world - Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, South America, and Zealandia - with the exception of Antartica. Our website views represent this development (see below).
