The ESPP was founded in 1992 in Tilburg, The Netherlands (as a sister organisation to the SPP, founded in 1974 in North America). The statutes describe its aim as the ‘furtherance of enquiry relating jointly to the fields of philosophy and psychology, and allied disciplines.’ For some time now the three main disciplines represented at the ESPP have been philosophy, psychology and linguistics.
