The MERG Mission:
MERG is a research group for philosophers interested in experimental and quantitative approaches to philosophical topics. Its mission is to support scholars conducting experimental research and to improve the quality of such work.
National groups such as the XPS provide opportunities for philosophers from around the world to meet and discuss papers in a formal setting. MERG has a different purpose. We are promoting and improving the use of experimental methods at the local level, by merging philosophers from different universities into a community of encouragement and self-improvement.
