We meet every Thursday in Chancellor's Building 4.10 at 6:15!
What We Do
Do you find yourself enjoying in intellectual conversations?
Interested in discussing non-trivial ideas in a relaxed and open environment, learning the basic philosophy concepts, or forming debate-style arguments?
If you are in search of a welcoming group of like-minded people, come and join us at the Philosophy Society!
We organise weekly meetups on campus to discuss ideas from a very wide range of topics: from religion to the ethics of AI. We also host events with guest speakers and activists sharing their knowledge providing thought-provoking ideas based on ground-breaking research or their personal experiences.
We will be announcing each week’s topic here. Make sure to follow us on Instagram @bathphilsoc and join our Whatsapp group (https://chat.whatsapp.com/JjJjAUfQku48yKJx56OCvM) so you don't miss any updates.

What are our weekly sessions like?
Our first session will be next week on *Thursday (5th)* Chancellor's Building 4.10
We'll meet every Thursday at 6:15pm. We may also head into town for food etc. when people feel like it (usually after 2 hours). Session topics are posted on the WhatsApp group, (and Instagram when we remember). So far sessions have had ~20 mins of slide presenting and discussing with the presenter, then a large group circle and past 8pm smaller free flowing groups. We'l change the format based on what works so please please give us feedback!
Can I come late or leave early?
Absolutely! It's much more like a room of people talking than a class and we'd be glad to summarise the discussion so far if you'd like it.
If you have any questions, feel free to drop us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be very happy to meet you and welcome you to our society
