Philosophical Society of Finland was founded in 1873. Its goal is to spark and keep up public’s interest towards philosophy and to foster research on philosophy conducted at the philosophy departments and on neighbouring fields. The society organises monthly meetings where researchers working in Finland give presentations on their philosophical topics of study. The society also organises several colloquiums, conferences and seminars each year. In addition the society runs two publication series, Ajatus (in Finnish and Swedish) and the international publication series, Acta Philosophica Fennica.
