'To promote critical thought and individual intellectual growth by providing an open forum for discussion and integrating philosophy into campus life.'
Philosophy Club (Fall 2013):
The Philosophy Club will be meeting every other Tuesday at 5 PM for presentations designed to
inspire and inform those interested in understanding, advancing, and living philosophical ideas!
September 24: Philosophy Professor Raphael Sassower examines the nature
and purpose of philosophy with a keen eye to answering the question, "What
does it me to be a philosopher?"
October 8: Thinking about graduate school? If so, now is the time to
start planning to apply. Philosophy Professors Dorothea Olkowski and Rex
Welshon speak on the topic of graduate school: how to pick one, how to
apply, and what sort of challenges one ought to expect along the way?
October 22: Do you have questions on how to make your philosophy papers pack the most
rhetorical punch into the pithiest package possible? Join us for a session
dedicated to developing the craft of effective philosophical writing.
November 5: The time is fast approaching for sending off those graduate
school applications. Concerned about how your Letters of Intent are
looking? Philosophy Professors Joseph Kuzma and Geoff Ashton will be on
hand to give us an in-depth look at the techniques you can use to make your
application the one they'll remember.
November 19: Free-range Philosophy Forum. Have questions or concerns of
a philosophical nature into which you'd like some deeper insights?
Interested in a topic that you might want to explore further in a final
paper? Join us for a fun, laid-back exploration of the ideas that inspire
us to wonder about the world.
November 26: Come join your peers and the greater UCCS community for a
much anticipated event. Professor Arindam Chakrabarti (University of Hawai'i
at Mānoa), one of the world's leading figures in Indian Philosophy, will
give a talk on the notion of God in Indian Philosophy. This event is
sponsored by The Center for Religious Diversity and Public Life. Also,
please join us afterwards as we continue the conversation with Professor
Chakrabarti, our own UCCS Philosophy Department faculty, and each other.
More details regarding this event to follow. Stay tuned!
