The Lighthearted Philosophers Society (LPS) is an organization for philosophers who approach their work with a sense of humor. We strive to create a venue for professional philosophy that is welcoming, and engaging, and most importantly funny. Please join us in our merry ruminations!

Our conference attracts philosophers from all over the nation and around the world. We are interested in both the philosophy of humor and humorous philosophy from any field. We welcome witty papers from any area of philosophy, and we’d especially enjoy papers on philosophical questions about humor. This year’s conference will also feature a stand-up comedy night, so if you’re in attendance you’re welcome to join us onstage!
