The British Postgraduate Philosophy Association (BPPA) is an association of postgraduate philosophy students in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.
The association was formed to provide an active community of support and advice for young philosophers, bridging geographical boundaries between different universities and departments. The BPPA is best known for its Annual Conference and Careers Advice Day, as well as for its Masterclasses.
As a community of philosophers, the BPPA widely supports initiatives to encourage diversity within the discipline. All postgraduate philosophers are welcome to make use of the BPPA’s resources and benefit from its services.

The Philosophical Society of England
The Philosophical Society of England is a group of enthusiasts who believe in the importance of exploring philosophical ideas and their relevance to our social and personal lives. It was founded in 1913 by a group of largely amateur philosophers concerned to provide an alternative to the formal university-based discipline. The Society is an independent Charity, (Registered UK Charity No. 1140044). It aligns itself with no particular school of philosophy and is not connected to any other movement or interest.
We develop our philosophical interests by:
- publishing a journal, The Philosopher
- organising national and regional conferences and study days
- sponsoring local groups
- maintaining a website
We bring together academic and non-academic philosophers and welcome everyone who recognises the value of open, critical discussion.
