The philosophy of physics is a part of what Newton called ‘Natural Philosophy‘ that emerged as an academic discipline in the twentieth century, and now consists of a thriving international community of philosophers, physicists and mathematicians. We are the professional society for that community.
The Society manages the discipline’s flagship new journal Philosophy of Physics, published on behalf of the Society by the LSE Press. The journal is published open access, and so our articles are not locked down behind a paywall: they are freely available for everyone to read and learn from. This is made possible through our generous supporters and membership fees, which are priced in tiers to be as accessible as possible, and which allow members to submit manuscripts to the journal free of charge.
The Society’s activities are described in more detail in the pages below. We thank our membership for your support, without which the Society’s activities would not be possible.
