International Association for Greek Philosophy

The International Center for Greek Philosophy and Culture (ICGPC) is a non-profit academic, research and cultural Institution which was formed in 1987 and established by law in 1990.

The ICGPC has its seat in Samos (Pythagorion), land of Ionia, which is also the birthplace of philosophy.

The ICGPC has its aim to promote international research into Greek philosophy, and to coordinate and develop the research carried out by specialists in Greek philosophy, and Greek Culture.

The Center views Greek Philosophy as including the philosophical production of the Greeks from the time of the Presocratics until today, since this intellectual production is expressed in the same language, namely Greek. Thus, it is not only the Ancient Greek Classical Philosophy that is defined as Greek Philosophy, but also that philosophy of the Church Fathers, together with Byzantine, Modern Greek and Contemporary Greek Philosophy.

Society for Asian and Comparative Philosophy
The SACP was established in 1967 as a non-profit organization aimed at advancing the development of the disciplines of Asian and comparative philosophy in the international academic arena, and bringing together Asian and Western philosophers for a mutually beneficial exchange of ideas.

The Society seeks to provide the same sort of professional outlet for philosophers doing work in non-Western areas of philosophy as the American Philosophical Association (APA) provides for their counterparts in Western thought. The group serves as the largest and most well-known professional organization for scholars in the fields of Asian, Indian, and comparative philosophy. It holds panels in conjunction with the APA, the Association of Asian Studies (AAS), and the American Academy of Religion (AAR).
