Welcome to Philsoc

Edinburgh … Where observation might be abundant indeed, but hardly sound.

George Eliot

Welcome to the University of Edinburgh Philosophy Society. Our goal is to make philosophy accessible and interesting, to create safe spaces for people to learn about and discuss philosophy, and to expand their horizons. We host regular events every week, as well as a library, journal, socials, and more. Check our About page for more info.

Whether you’re a full-time philosophy student or just a fellow lover of knowledge, our society is bound to have something that’s just right for you. We urge you to purchase a membership on our EUSA page to show support for the work we do. Our community is centred around our Discord server and our Facebook page. We also send out a weekly newsletter with announcements and events. We also have a Twitter and Instagram.

You can find our PhilSoc Guide To Edinburgh here:
