PHILOSOP is the largest internet e-mail list of professional philosophers in the world, with subscribers from a wide variety of countries and institutions, both big and small. PHILOSOP is run by István S. N. Berkeley of the Philosophy program and is based at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, in Lafayette, Louisiana USA.
Please direct all enquiries to the listowner and moderator, István Berkeley at email@example.com
The purpose of PHILOSOP is to provide an easy, informal, and fast, way for people interested in academic Philosophy to exchange anything relevant that can be exchanged via the medium of e-mail, and, taking that as given, to keep reasonably large the ratio of utility to volume.
By academic Philosophy (or, anyway, its expression in the word) we mean, approximately, the kind of professional writing that is done by people studying (beyond the elementary level), or teaching, in university philosophy departments. Texts satisfying that criterion might be of many different kinds: work in progress, comments thereon, advertisements for conferences, newsletters, journals, or associations, job postings, announcements of other mailing lists and philosophically relevant WWW pages.
