Founded in 1922, the Australasian Association of Philosophy is the peak charity for the promotion of philosophical research, education and scholarship in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. Membership consists of academic philosophers, students and community members with an interest in philosophy. We promote philosophy in universities, schools, and among the general public.

The AAP urges Australians to use their critical thinking skills and their hearts when voting in the upcoming referendum.
