Beyond the Classroom
There’s a great deal more to Philosophy at PC than just meeting core requirements. Whether you’re a Philosophy major or minor (or not), you can get involved in Philosophy in lots of ways at PC.
Contemporary Philosophy Workshop
The Contemporary Philosophy Workshop meets three times per semester to discuss a journal article published in the last 12 months chosen by workshop participants. The aim of the workshop is for students to develop responses to the most up-to-date philosophical research on a variety of philosophical topics, without the aid of received views or interpretations. To be added to the workshop mailing list, contact the workshop organizer, Ed Dain.
