The WPA began as an informal alumni society for the Department of Philosophy at the University of Windsor. Shortly after the inception of the WPA it became a loose knit association of alumni from the department of philosophy, philosophers located in Windsor, and generally friends of philosophy within the region. This more general association was intended to be an open group that supports the development of a critical community of the philosophically minded within the region. The WPA supported both student and independent scholarship and encourages philosophers to bring their research beyond the bounds of the university and into the public sphere.
In May of 2013, the WPA transformed again into the WP(A)A, a registered Non-Profit Corporation and Charitable Organization in Ontario. The notion behind this latest transformation is to establish a non-profit artist organization (akin to Artcite, Windsor) dedicated to supporting independent philosophical scholarship and philosophers intervention events within the greater Windsor region.

Hi all, here is a link to the video from the World Philosophy Day event held at Phog (Downtown Windsor) on Thursday November 15, 2012.  If you missed it, you missed an excellent talk by Dr. Gail Presbey and excellent commentary by Dr. Jeff Noonan.  Thanks to all who attended and a special thank you to Jeff Renaud for organizing this impressive event.

Keep checking in with the blog over the next couple of months.  The WPA has some exciting developments developing...
