We encourage you to join the Bertrand Russell Society! We are a group of academics, activists, and private individuals. What unites us is our abiding and shared interest in Russell’s life, works, and values. We strive to preserve and promote Russell’s legacy.

Membership in the Society gives you the right to decide our course in the stewardship of Russell’s legacy. You get to vote in elections and at membership meetings, present papers at the annual meeting, engage in committees, stand for elected office, and discuss Society matters and Russelliana in our discussion list.

Membership also entitles you to a subscription to Russell: the Journal of Bertrand Russell Studies, and gives you access video and photos in the online Stanley Library. And many Society members have made good friends around shared Russellian values and interests.

Membership is on an annual basis. Renewals are due on January 1st. If you join in the last three months of the year, you have the option of beginning to receive some of your membership benefits, like the Russell journal, in the upcoming year.

To join or renew by mail, indicate the desired membership in the mailing and send a check for the desired membership amount to this address:
