PESNA aims to further the professional status of the field of Philosophy of Education by joining other regional, national and international philosophy of education societies in encouraging thoughtful scholarship and a robust exchange of ideas between philosophers, philosophers of education and educational practitioners. 



PESNA brings philosophers and educational researchers in Canada, the United States, and Mexico together with scholars around the world to further philosophical reflection on education and educational inquiry in philosophy.

Education, enlarging as it does our horizon and perspective, is a means of multiplying our ideals, of bringing new ones into view.
— William James
Prejudices, it is well known, are most difficult to eradicate from the heart whose soil has never been loosened or fertilised by education.
— Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
