Our society aims to look at the many philosophical issues presented throughout human history and provide a place to discuss these ideas and meet people with similar interests and passions! 

We are planning to have many socials where we go for a drink or coffee and discuss some big topics, while we also run a film club and have guest speaker talks on a fortnight basis on issues of ethics, art, metaphysics, meaning in life, politics and much much more. All are welcome and we look forward to discussing all the philosophical conundrums in the world and provide a place to debate and ponder these issues that are endlessly interesting with you all.
