Steven Humphrey Fund for Excellence in Philosophy

The Steven Humphrey Fund for Excellence in Philosophy supports the Humphrey Distinguished Visitors as well as prestigious conferences which explore the frontiers and borders of philosophy by bringing together rigorous philosophers to discuss and debate the problems that are central to the discipline’s future directions. This fund has had a dramatic impact on the pedagogical and research program of the Philosophy Department at UCSB. The Department of Philosophy at University of California, Santa Barbara is very grateful to Steven Humphrey for his generous support in making these conferences possible. Dr. Humphrey has given the Department of Philosophy an opportunity to invite speakers of national prominence and to promote a philosophical exchange at the highest level of professionalism.
