Philosophy Club

The Philosophy Club is a group of  mostly undergraduate, and some graduate, students who meet for various philosophically-related activities. Many attendees are philosophy majors or minors, but non-philosophy students are very welcome as well.

We discuss philosophically interesting issues in a pretty informal way, usually accompanied by pizza and pop. Often our discussion will be centred around a particular reading or film. Recent works discussed include Thomas Nagel's What is it Like to be a Bat?, Bertrand Russell's The Sex Taboo, and Michael Huemer's America's Unjust Drug War.  We are very much a member-directed group, so anyone who is interested in suggesting a particular reading, film, or activity for the group is encouraged to do so.

  • Meetings:  Generally Thursday evenings, but the day and time can vary from semester to semester.  Contact the club Advisor for details.
  • Location: Usually 301 Shatzel Hall, but occasionally another location (check with one of the people listed below for a particular week)
