The Society for Modern Philosophy now has a listserv and a website:
I am going to be out of town for a bit over a week, and I don’t know how much access I’ll have to the internet, so there likely won’t be any big progress or changes until I get back from out of town. And I need to approve people’s requests to join the mailing list, so if you sign up and don’t get confirmation right away, that’s why.
Spread the word!

I have been asked what precisely I have in mind by the designation “Modern Philosophy”. Trying to come up with a precise range of dates or figures to include is, of course, a whole can of worms. In complete honesty, my main motivation for going with “Modern Philosophy” rather than “Early Modern Philosophy” had to do with Kant. In my experience, some people use “Early Modern” to refer to work spanning from, roughly, Hobbes/Descartes up to, but not including, Kant. I am sure that some people use the phrase “early modern” to encompass Kant as well. I intended for the society to include Kant, at the least. I also intended for the society’s scope not to exclude, for instance,Frege (or those who come after Frege). This is not because I dislike Frege, but because the Analytic school and 20th century philosophy in general, seem to me outside the scope of “Modern Philosophy.”
Of course, this leaves a sizable collection of philosophers between Kant and Frege that are, as far as my intentions were concerned, neither definitely to be included nor definitely to be excluded. As much as I love to just decide things by fiat, I figured it might be a good idea to open this up to some discussion. So, please, share your thoughts in the comments!
