About the Nordic Network in Metaphysics

The Nordic Network in Metaphysics is an informal network of those philosophers in the Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden) that have an interest in metaphysics. It is open to whoever wants to be associated with the network. The aim is to arrange one meeting per year, democratically rotating the responsibility of organisation between the Nordic countries.
