About the club
The Philosophy Club is composed of students of any major who are interested in philosophy. Members come together in the spirit of collaboration to learn about and discuss philosophical topics of interest. The club is open to every student who has broad philosophical interests and a desire to participate and contribute to the group, and students may participate at their leisure.
The Philosophy Club meets about once a month for conversation in the Thomas Merton Center (University Ministries) on Wednesday or Thursday evenings at 8 p.m. Meetings are open to all St. Bonaventure students, faculty and alumni.
Discussions involve seeking answers to questions including: Who am I? What is the purpose of God? Is reality what we think it is? What does it mean to live a good life? How do we acquire knowledge? What is the importance of community on the individual?
Some of our past topics have included emotions, topics in the philosophy of the mind, euthanasia, political philosophy, ethics, epistemology, ontology, the role of religion, and philosophy of math and science. We welcome new members and ideas. If you are interested in a fun, mentally stimulating evening full of lively discussion, join us!
