Election to Honorary Treasureship of the Society of Applied Philosophy

Date: 2 July 2011

Garrath Williams was elected to the Honorary Treasureship of the Society of Applied Philosophy at the Society's annual conference in Manchester. He takes over from Neil Manson (also in PPR at Lancaster University), who has served in this role for the past five years. Also joining the SAP's Execuitve Committee are Kasper Lippert-Rasmussen as Chair, and Thomas Douglas and Zofia Stemplowksa.

The Society for Applied Philosophy was founded in 1982 with the aim of promoting philosophical study and research that has a direct bearing on areas of practical concern. It arose from an increasing awareness that many topics of public debate are capable of being illuminated by the critical, analytic approach characteristic of philosophy, and by direct consideration of questions of value. These topics come from a number of different areas of social life - law, politics, economics, science, technology, medicine and education are among the most obvious. The purpose of the SAP is foster and promote philosophical work that is intended to make a constructive contribution to problems in these areas.
