In Memorium: Jerry Gaus (1952-2020)

The PPE Society was saddened to learn that Jerry Gaus passed away suddenly on August 19, 2020.
Jerry was a towering force in  political philosophy and a founding member of the PPE Society. We will deeply miss him, but we are grateful for the impressive and insightful body of work he leaves behind.

2021 PPE Society Annual Meeting

Concerned that March 2021 might not be a good time for an in-person PPE Society Conference, we have moved our conference to October 21-23, 2021. Our plan, going forward, is to the the PPE Society Annual Meeting in the Fall each year, either late October, as this coming year, or early November. A call for proposals will be announced soon.
