Larry Millstein, President,
Philosophical Society of Washington
The Philosophical Society of Washington was founded on March 13, 1871. It was preceded by gatherings at the home of Joseph Henry, the great scientist whose discoveries laid the foundations for advances in magnetism and electromagnetism. Since 1887 it has met at the Cosmos Club, in whose founding the Philosophical members played a large part. In 1878, when the Cosmos was founded, there was fear that the Philosophical would start an alternative club, so all the present members of the Philosophical were invited to join as founding members of the Cosmos.
The Philosophical Society of Washington is now known as PSW Science. More information can be found on their meetings and more at: https://pswscience.org/
华盛顿哲学学会成立于1871 年3月13日。在此之前，约瑟夫·亨利(Joseph Henry) 在家中举行了相关聚会，这位伟大科学家的发现为磁学和电磁学的进步奠定了基础。自1887 年以来，该学会在科斯莫俱乐部（Cosmos Club）举行会议，哲学学会成员在该俱乐部的成立一事中发挥了很大作用。科斯莫俱乐部于1878年成立时，有人担心哲学学会成员将成立替代性俱乐部，因此在场所有的哲学学会成员都被邀请以科斯莫俱乐部创始成员的身份加入该俱乐部。
