The British Society for the Philosophy of Religion
Registered charity 1027548
The British Society for the Philosophy of Religion (registered charity 1027548) was founded in 1993 and is the UK’s main forum for the interchange of ideas in the philosophy of religion. The Society has, since 1995, held a biennial conference in Britain, devoted to a particular area of the subject.
The BSPR's eighth conference, on God, Mind and Knowledge, was held at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford University, in September 2011; speakers at the plenary sessions included Robin Le Poidevin, Anthony Kenny, John Cottingham, and Charles Taliaferro. The BSPR’s tenth conference, on Atheism, will be held in Oxford in September 2013. Details to be posted here in due course.
The BSPR is also affiliated to the European Society for the Philosophy of Religion which holds a biennial conference in years alternating with the BSPR’s conference. To download details of the next ESPR conference, in 2012, click here. To view the full Constitution of the BSPR, click here.
The programme of events for the Society is decided at the General Meeting held at the Biennial Conference. The planning of the programme is in the hands of the Committee, consisting currently of Professor Stephen R. L. Clark (President), Professor Robin Le Poidevin (former President), Dr Andrew Moore (Secretary), Dr Yujin Nagasawa (Treasurer), and three other Committee Members.
