Title : Social philosophy and policy center

Description :
This is the website of the Social Philosophy and Policy Center (SPPC) based at Bowling Green State University, USA. Established in 1981, the centre studies public policy issues from a philosophical perspective. In so doing, it uses insights from other disciplines like economics, jurisprudence and political science. The site informs visitors of upcoming events (e.g. colloquia; lectures and conferences) and of works recently published by its staff, fellows and visiting scholars. It also connects them to Social Philosophy and Policy, the centre's journal which is published twice a year by Cambridge University Press. Each volume is based on a specific theme (e.g. bioethics; human rights; ethics and economics; philosophy and law; virtue and vice; responsibility; the welfare state; autonomy; and moral epistemology). Visitors can view all themes explored since 1983 from that homepage.
