Nordic Society for Philosophy of Religion

Philosophy of Religion has become a growing field of research, connecting scholars from the Humanities and Social Sciences in inter-disciplinary research. Recognising the need for closer co-operation between philosophy and theology, sociology, and religious studies, researchers from Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, the Baltic countries, and NW Russia founded the Nordic Society for Philosophy of Religion[NSPR] in 2006.

Presentation of the Society

The Nordic Society for Philosophy of Religion (NSPR) is an international and inter-disciplinary network, affiliated with the European Society for Philosophy of Religion (ESPR) and the International Philosophy of Religion Association (IPRA). 

NSPR organises biennial conferences in the Nordic countries, in Oslo (2007), Reykjavik (2009) Copenhagen (2011), Stockholm (2013), Helsinki (2015) and Oslo (2017).
