Book Club

Important update: the PhilSoc book club is now co-hosted by the Philosophy Department at the University and run largely by staff. It is now only open to philosophy students.

Over the course of each semester, we aimed to finish one longer philosophical work, meeting to discuss the contents and ideas in each few chapters. There is no general theme for the group, we decide upon the next book at the conclusion of the previous one.

This group was aimed at an honours/postgraduate level, but all are welcome to join. No prior philosophical knowledge required.
