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 peer-reviewed journal, the Journal of the Philosophical Study of Education (JPSE).
