The purpose of this Society is:
- To increase the skills and abilities of students interested in philosophy by practicing and exercising critical and philosophical thinking, and by informing and introducing those new to the study of philosophy to the methods of philosophy as an academic and personal discipline.
- To provide an avenue of learning not just for students, but for faculty and the University at large, and to encourage interdisciplinary dialogue on relevant philosophical topics so as to create a University-wide forum.
- To promote discourse with other institutions of higher learning by promoting debate and an exchange of ideas with professors and students of other Universities.
- To provide a safe, wholesome atmosphere for individuals to discuss philosophical topics with students of common interests, and form friendships based on the love and pursuit of wisdom.
We meet on Wednesdays at 7:00 pm in Taylor 130.
