The ETSU Philosophy Club exists to provide a forum for the open discussion of ideas among peers interested in philosophical thought. Our goal is to increase the quality of the educational experience for students of philosophy at ETSU, and act as a bridge for communication between and among philosophy students, faculty, and guest lecturers.
Every year the Philosophy Club and the Department of Philosophy and Humanities co-host the Appalachian Regional Student Philosophy Colloquium. The year-end event (typically in March) provides a welcoming environment for students to present their research to the ETSU faculty and other visiting speakers. Specific information about submitting will be sent out as the conference draws near, but this is a great way to begin building your CV if you are preparing for graduate school.
Some of our other regular events include movie screenings, discussion groups, and Philosophy Coffees. At our Philosophy Coffees, we invite a faculty member or guest lecturer to give a short presentation on a field of their expertise, which is then followed up by Q&A and an open discussion. These events are held throughout the year, so keep an eye out for flyers or send an email to the club at the address below to be placed on our mailing list.
We exist for those students studying philosophy and for the ETSU student population in general. Our goal is for the club to continue to grow and evolve. If you have any ideas you would like to see implemented please get in touch with us.
