We are people who dig philosophy. We’re sophomores, seniors, male, female, quiet, crazy, longtime students of ancient philosophical traditions, and people who can’t even spell "Nietzsche" yet. Some of us are in the national philosophical honor society (Phi Sigma Tau); some already graduated and can’t resist the conversation. All interested parties, without restriction, are invited.
Our goal is simple: philosophy as Socrates intended it - outside the confines of the classroom. Several times a month (typically weekly) we gather at a local establishment, or a member's house, to talk about a philosophical topic or paper we have chosen to read (distributed electronically), or watch a movie, and have lots of fun while we discuss, discuss, discuss. We also plan to hold other kinds of outings, such as bowling nights and Frisbee golf.
