Pacific Study Group

of the

North American Kant Society


General Information

The Pacific Study Group (PSG) is an informal group that meets once a year (historically, in the fall) to facilitate interaction among Kant scholars by means of 5 or 6 45-minute presentations followed by informal discussion. One should be a member of NAKS to present a paper at the PSG meeting.

Attendance at the PSG meetings is free and open to all.

The PSG receives financial support from the North American Kant Society and from host universities.
