Welcome to Warwick Philosophy Society!
As a society, we aim to create a community for all who have an interest in philosophy, as well as providing academic support to students in the Philosophy Department.
We often meet at the Dirty Duck or at our weekly 'Phil n' Tea' sessions, held every Friday from 3-5pm in the Philosophy Common Room, which serves as opportunities for discussion as well as catching up over tea and biscuits.
We also host regular guest speaker events with academics from outside and within the University, as well as mini-speaker events presented by undergraduate and postgraduate students. These talks cover a wide range of topics such as the history of philosophy, aesthetics, political philosophy, ethics and philosophy of mind to name but a few. In addition, we organise several reading groups each term which allow an insight into philosophers and questions not covered by the University programme. Pharos, the undergraduate philosophy magazine at Warwick, is also funded by the society.
As an academic society, we run regular support sessions throughout the year for students on philosophy-related courses. These include revision of topics ahead of exams, advice and guidance sheets, as well as weekly logic sessions in the second term. In addition, you can find our logic support videos by following our designated Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Warwick-PhilSoc-Logic-Support-Videos-1422522237758188/
Aside from this, we organise movie nights, themed events and termly POP socials, as well as the society ball. This year there will also be a Philosophy Tour to Edinburgh!
