71st Annual Meeting

Nature and its Meanings

College of the Holy Cross, Worcester, Massachusetts
March 19-21, 2021

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the 71st annual meeting of the Metaphysical Society of America, which was to take place March 19-22 2020, has been rescheduled to March 19-21, 2021. It was the consensus of the Executive Committee and the President that the meeting, as planned in its traditional format, could not move forward during the COVID pandemic. However, after much consideration and planning we have decided to implement a safe and responsible alternative leveraging remote conference systems.

The confrence will feature the same speakers as planned for the 2020 meeting (please see the Meeting Program link below), and speakers’ papers will be attached to this website and accessible to registrants only. All registrants from last year will be automatically registered for the 2021 remote meeting, and will receive the necessary Zoom links before the conference.

Despite pestilence and political upheaval, the search for truth goes on. Those interested in registering to gain remote access to the conference, contact Larry Cahoone, President of the MSA. .

Very best wishes,

Lawrence Cahoone, Ph.D.
President of the Metaphysical Society
Professor of Philosophy
College of the Holy Cross
