Philosophy Society primarily provides a platform for students to give talks, bi-weekly, on topics they've done some research on. Last year, talks on the meaning on Religion, with reference to Kierkegaard, and 'Materialism', with reference to Marx and Adorno, were given. Occasionally we host speakers either from within Essex, or elsewhere in the UK, to come and present their research. Additionally, as we're also the departmental society, at least once a term we put on events for students studying philosophy so they can get to know better others who are doing the same: lasertag, ice skating, art day (funner than it sounds).
Membership is free this year so might as well join, especially if you do Philosophy or any other of the 'SPAH/ISC' courses.
The best place to keep up to date with what events are coming up is our facebook page or instagram @essexphilosophysociety.
