The Danish Philosophical Society (DFS) was established in Copenhagen on March 20, 1999. The general purpose of the organization is to strengthen the role of philosophy in Denmark.

This aim is pursued mainly through the cooperation between the philosophy departments of higher education and research institutions in Denmark by taken turns in arranging annual philosophy conferences, maintaining a web page with a national philosophy calendar, a list of philosophy publications in Danish, and a review journal in Danish. These activities are announced through a free newsletter circulated six times a year.

In addition, the organization recognizes the need for a national forum in Denmark to establish and maintain contacts between the philosophical university environments and philosophy teachers in high school and higher education, as well as those interested in philosophy within other disciplines, fields and institutions.

Today, the Danish Philosophical Society owns the Danish Yearbook of Philosophy and the local editorial board consists of appointed representatives from the philosophy departments at all Danish universities. More information can be found on the website, here.

Danish Yearbook of Philosophy

Editor-in-Chief: Asger Sørensen
The Danish Yearbook of Philosophy is a peer-reviewed journal published annually for the Danish Philosophical Society. Reflecting the broad interpretation of philosophy institutionalized at Danish Universities, the Yearbook aims to cover a broad ground in relation to philosophical schools, styles and traditions. The journal publishes in English, German and French.

The Danish Yearbook of Philosophy was founded in 1964 to stimulate the professional interaction between Danish philosophers and their international colleagues. The journal now has a broad focus and welcomes all submissions of general philosophical interest. Still it has as its particular mission the publication of articles of a high international standard relating to Danish academic philosophy in the following senses:

1.) The theme or subject of the contribution is a Danish philosopher or a school of philosophy that has, or has had, a significant representation in Denmark. 2.) The activity behind the contribution is linked to Denmark, typically in the form of a presentation originally delivered in Denmark, e.g. as a keynote address, an invited guest lecture, a contribution to a seminar etc. 3.) The author of the contribution is a Danish philosopher, a philosopher based in Denmark, or connected to Denmark in some other way.

The Yearbook may dedicate a section or a whole issue to a specific theme. Prospective guest editors are encouraged to write to the Editor-in-Chief.

The Yearbook also has as its special mission to review books published in English, German or French by Danish philosophers, or philosophers with strong ties to Denmark. Reviewers must be non-Danish philosophers.
