KU Philosophy Student Association

The "Philosophy Club" is very active and meets bi-monthly (usually every other Thursday from 11-11:50 a.m. in MSU). The meetings feature a student, faculty member or invited guest speaker, and hold an open discussion. Topics vary with the interests of the students in the club. It has provided a forum for bringing national and international scholars to the university for visiting lectures. The meetings also provide an opportunity for students to present their own research, discuss their interests or simply float new ideas. Students in the club regularly present papers at regional philosophy conferences and publish their work in undergraduate journals of philosophy. 

Philosophy Club explores a wide range of philosophical issues of interest to both students and the university community. The club is open to all, not just philosophy majors. All we require is intellectual curiosity and an open mind.

Interested in giving a talk or recommending a speaker? Contact one of the faculty advisors listed below.
