Brief Description of Society Activities
The purpose of the Philosophy Society is to provide a space for students studying the course, including combined honours students and students who simply have an extra-curricular interest in philosophy, to socialise and share ideas. The aim of this is to make sure students do not feel isolated on the course, and they have a relaxed environment to form social connections among their peers, as well as discuss philosophical ideas and texts which interest them among like-minded individuals.
Activities which are held at Philosophy Society include our ‘Think & Drink’ informal discourses, in which members of the society are welcome to present and lead their own philosophical discussions. We will also be holding a Spring Ball this year, in which students may celebrate a mile stone in their course, as well as socialise and have a fun, classy night out with fellow peers. Occasional social events in bars and clubs are held to further this opportunity to socialise with course mates. Discourses are held, allowing students with extra-curricular philosophical academic interests to present papers which they may consider applying to a conference or a journal, thus allowing the students to get practice and reception in such academic activities.
Philosophy Soicety will also offer non-drinking socials provided that there are students who do not feel comfortable in drinking environments. Moreover, we hold a Philosophy Readers Club which will provide students who are fervent readers with a community in which they can share this passion.
