The Society for Philosophy and Technology is an independent international organization that encourages, supports and facilitates
philosophically significant considerations of technology. Founded in 1976, SPT maintains an association with the American Philosophical
Association, and holds sessions at each of the APA’s three annual regional meetings. Additionally, the Society convenes its own international
conference biennially. This biennial conference rotates between Europe and North America. USA, Mexico, Puerto Rico, The Netherlands, Germany,
France, Spain are among the countries that have hosted conferences.
SPT publishes Techné: Research on Philosophy & Technology (a scientific journal that appears three times a year), the proceedings
of its international conferences, and the quarterly SPT Newsletter. The Society is dedicated to the pluralistic exploration of
technology, and welcomes a variety of philosophical and other disciplinary approaches in both its conferences and its publications.
Membership in SPT is open to individuals whose work is in keeping with the interests of the Society, including those who have an
advanced degree (typically but not necessarily in philosophy), those who are in a technological field, and students whose work
includes philosophically significant considerations of technology.
