PhilSoc Discussion Groups 2014/15
Discussion Groups take place every Tuesday evening at 7pm in Ushers, West Nicholson Street. Our disccusions are FREE to attend (£2 suggested donation) for non-members. We cover a range of philosophical topics throughout the academic year.
Our discusions assume NO previous knowledge of philosophy or the specific topic. The group attracts attendees with a wide variety of skills and interests and we actively encourage both undergraduate and postgraduate students from a wide range of academic disciplines to come along and get involved in any way that would like to. Your are most welcome to think about the topic beforehand, or just turn up on the night and learn about something new.
