Phi Sigma Tau

Phi Sigma Tau is the International Honor Society in Philosophy. Founded in 1930 and incorporated as a nonprofit corporation in 1955, the society now has a network of more than 200 chapters throughout the United States and Canada, at both public and private institutions of higher learning.


The purpose of Phi Sigma Tau is to encourage interest and activity among students and to promote ties between philosophy departments in accredited institutions.


The society hosts numerous events throughout the year, including informal discussions, pizza nights, movie screenings, sponsored lectures by noted philosophers and social outings around Kansas City.


Phi Sigma Tau publishes the journal Dialogue, which includes student contributions in all areas of contemporary philosophical research. Additional publications include the PST Newsletterpublished three times a year, and the National Alumni Chapter (NAC) Bulletin. The PST Newsletter is sent to all students and alumni members and contains news of local chapter activities. The NAC provides a medium of exchange and communication for onetime members who desire to retain their affiliation with the society following graduation.
