New Mexico Texas Philosophical Society – 65th Annual Conference

By on January 14, 2014

Welcome to the New Mexico Texas Philosophical Society (NMT), a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting philosophical thought and education. NMT holds annual meetings in late March or early April and is an inviting place for philosophers of all levels to present their ideas. In 2009, the Society held its first Student Colloquium which was a great success and continues to grow, a sign that indicates the strength and quality of NMT and the discipline of philosophy in general. Pursuant to the mission of NMT, the Society publishes a professional journal Southwest Philosophical Studies(SPS). SPS is a blind and peer reviewed journal which publishes ten to twelve of the best papers accepted into the annual conference.
