Student Organizations

The Philosophy Club is an informal student group intended to pursue philosophical activities outside of the classroom. The club is open to any Georgia Southern Student with an interest in philosophy, regardless of their major.  The club participates in and sponsors activities that promote the love of wisdom and the pursuit of truth. These activities include panel discussions of philosophical topics, presentations of student research, hosting guest lectures, participating in student conferences, and service projects within the community.  The club works closely with Georgia Southern’s chapter of Phi Sigma Tau, the international honors society of philosophy.

Philosophy After Dark is an informal philosophy discussion group that meets once a week off-campus to discuss pre-selected philosophical topics. As differing points of view are particularly valued for the discussions, students of any major are strongly encouraged to attend and participate! Topics of discussion range from abstract metaphysical questions to contemporary moral issues. Participants are encouraged to submit topics for consideration as well!                                                                           Contact Dr. Dan Larkin for more information at dlarkin@georgiasouthern.edu
