SUMMER 1977, Volume 8

Introduction

State University Chancellor Samuel B. Gould established the Center for Philosophic Exchange at the College of Arts and Science' at Brockport, New York on April 11, 1969 "to conduct a continuing program of philosophic inquiry relating to both academic and public issues."

The Center is a non-profit organization supported by a number of public and private sources, both organizational and individual, whose faith in the values of philosophic inquiry and exchange ·makes possible the Center's continuing program. The Center conducts conferences and seminars on a variety of philosophic topics, publishing the results in two major ways: through the making of television tapes, and through the printing of these Annual Proceedings. Center television tapes have been broadcast on occasion over affiliates of the National Education Television Network and by other broadcast facilities, and are available under certain conditions on a loan basis for non-profit educational use. Single copies of the printed Annual Proceedings of the Center are available on a subscription basis as follows: $5.00 to institutions, $3.00 to individuals and faculty, and $2.50 to students. Please address inquiries to Center for Philosophic Exchange, State University of New York, College of Arts and Science at Brockport, Brockport, New York, 14420.

The Center continues the program of the International Philosophy Year 1967-1968, which produced fourteen international conferences at the Brockport campus, on a variety of philosophical topics. The major papers produced by that program have been published by State University of New York Press as a four-volume anthology titled Contemporary Philosophic Thought; Volume I, Language, Belief and Metaphysics; Volume II, Mind, Science and History; Volume III, Perspectives in Education, Religion, and the Arts; Volume IV, Ethics and Social Justice (Eds. H. Kiefer and M. Munitz, Albany, 1970).
