What is the Philosophy & Debating Society all about?
The aim of the Philosophy & Debating Society is to encourage the learning, critical thinking, and presentation of philosophical ideas, or in other words, just a group of students getting together to talk philosophy !
You do not need to have any prior knowledge of philosophy or debating to join !
We separate our philosophy and debating events, so you can engage with whichever part you're interested in !
Weekly meetings will be held on two days and last for 2 hours:
Tuesdays will be allocated to general Philosophical discussions on anything from the works of great authors such as Friedrich Nietzsche to more contemporary philosophers such as Slavoj Žižek and their impact and relevance in the modern world (partly in preparation for the debate session). These have no specific format but are rather more friendly and welcoming conversations.
Thursdays will be reserved for Debates, the topic of which will be consistent with the topic of the discussion held prior, these will be held in whichever format is decided on the day !
The topic of discussions and debates will vary on a weekly basis.
Additionally, the Philosophy & Debating society hosts occasional events such as inviting guest speakers to give talks, movie screenings (e.g. Fight club) and debating skills & strategy discussion nights where members can share the way they prepare for debates, handling public speaking and anything else debate-related.
PLEASE NOTE: THERE ARE NO EVENTS FOR THE PHILOSOPHY & DEBATING SOCIETY FOR THE ACADEMIC YEAR 2021-2022
