About Us

Aims and Objectives:

  1. To expand the Philosophy Society to involve more people, making it a greater resource to those who study philosophy and those who have a passion for it
  2. To provide an environment where people on the same course can interact socially, away from lectures.
  3. To enhance people's understanding and awareness of philosophy

The Philosophy Society is one of the most active academic societies on campus, we hold socials, put on talks, and organise sports teams, as a way for all those with a love of philosophy to meet and make friends. The society is open for anyone with an interest in the philosophical, so bring your flatmates and friends along!


We hold non-academic socials nearly every week. We have our big staple events like the Christmas dinner and the spring ball, and a variety of other socials from boozy bowling and pub crawls, to pizza nights and film screenings. We also host Philosophy and Wine every other week at the Ship Inn, where our members get 20% off drinks.


As well as our social events we also host speakers every fortnight. In the past we’ve had talks from the likes of Julian Baggini, David Pearce, and Rupert Sheldrake. We also host a fortnightly seminar series as well as rent out communal study space for philosophy students to study together. On top of this we organise our own journal, Notion.


We currently have both netball and football intramural sports teams that are open for members of the society to join. We also host our own rounders tournament during first term for those of you who want to play sport in a less formal way.

On top of all this there is loads more, including group trips abroad, society stash, and joint socials with other societies. You can find out more by checking out our social medias:
