CJP Home | About | History | Announcements


The Society for Contemporary Jewish Philosophy (CJP; originally "Society for Continental Philosophy in a Jewish Context" [CPJC]) was founded in 2001 as a forum for scholars working in the intersections between Jewish philosophical and textual traditions and Continental European philosophy.

Our meetings take place in conjunction with those of SPEP (Society for Phenomenology and Existential Philosophy), the North American organization representing scholars specializing in Continental philosophy.
