Concerned Philosophers for Peace



Download Full Text (7.1 MB)


We organized at the Pacific Division meeting of the American Philosophical Association this year in Portland, having found that we share several convictions. A general one is that as the nuclear arms race continues to accelerate and international tensions increase our chances of survival diminish. Yet we do not want to hide from the facts, nor do we want to stand by and watch as though nuclear war were some new kind of public spectacle. We feel furthermore that as philosophers and as educators we own a precious responsibility for the condition of our society and indeed for the whole human community, a responsibility which we must not fail to exercise in this time of unprecedented peril.
