The Society furthers the study of the arts and related types of experience from a philosophical, historical, critical, and educational point of view.
The society holds an annual meeting, at which papers are read and discussed. Regional divisions of the Society hold local meetings in various cities. The Society also publishes "The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism."
