About the Association

The Mind Association supports and promotes research excellence in philosophy. It is responsible for the management and financial support of the quarterly journal, Mind.

The Association also supports philosophical research in two main other ways: by offering conference grants to help fund high quality, open conferences and workshops in any area of philosophy; and by funding research fellowships. There are two kind of fellowship: Mind Research Fellowships (6 months), and the biennial Mind Senior Research Fellowship (12 months). It is a condition of each that a replacement lectureship is advertised and appointed to for the tenure of the fellowship or part-time equivalent. For the senior fellowship it is also a condition that, some time before the end of the academic year following their fellowship, the Mind Senior Fellow gives a public lecture hosted by their home institution.

Membership of the Association is automatically given to any subscriber to the journal, whether an individual or an institution. In addition to receiving the journal, members may attend the national philosophical conference (the Joint Session) organised with the Aristotelian Society and held each year in July at a university in the UK or Republic of Ireland. The AGM of the Mind Association takes place at this conference and members are entitled to vote on any relevant business at this meeting. (If the member is an institutional subscriber, then an individual representative may be appointed to attend.) A list of all individual members is published each year in the January issue of Mind.
