The purpose of the ISSP is to promote and encourage the highest levels of research and study of Scottish philosophy. Its specific aims include:

  • Extending interest in Scottish philosophy beyond the traditional period of the Scottish Enlightenment among philosophers, theologians and historians of ideas.
  • Exploring the impact of the Scottish philosophical tradition on the development of liberal arts colleges and theological education in North America.
  • Recovering the resources of the tradition for engagement with contemporary philosophical and theological thought.
