2.    Publish research in aesthetics in refereed journals.


3.      Provide an arena for the presentation of M.A. and Ph.D. theses in aesthetics, written at Israeli universities and colleges.


4.     Provide an arena for the discussion of books and academic articles in aesthetics, published by ISA members.



5.      Aim at the initiation of a journal dedicated for aesthetics and art criticism.


6.      Establish an online website that will provide information in the area.



7.      Advance inter-disciplinary academic discourse among Israeli aestheticians.


8.      Promote further international relationships between ISA members and aestheticians world-wide.
