The Purpose of the Philosophy Club is to facilitate philosophical discourse in an informal, extracurricular environment. While this may take many forms, the philosophy club is committed to holding organized discussions/debates on relevant philosophical issues and to engaging in the larger philosophical community. This may mean that we discuss a relevant philosophical article, organize a trip to a talk or conference nearby, or that we organize a film viewing of a movie that has philosophical merit.
