Publications from past World Congresses

Each World Congress of Philosophy is a significant cultural event. In most cases a Proceedings collection is published that captures the best work presented. Over 200 volumes have been published in many languages since the first Congress in 1900. The Philosophy Documentation Center has digitized all of these volumes for online access and long term preservation.
