Established in 2000, The Society for Skeptical Studies is an independent philosophical society which was formed to promote philosophical discussion and research on any topic related to skepticism (construed broadly to include the history of skeptical thought, skepticism regarding mental content, skepticism regarding self-knowledge, and moral skepticism, as well as more traditional topics in skepticism). The society meets annually at the Pacific Division meetings of the American Philosophical Association. If interest warrants, sessions may be organized at the Eastern and Central Division meetings as well. Although the Society for Skeptical Studies is primarily a philosophical society, non-philosophers are also encouraged to become members.
