Welcome to the University of Edinburgh Philosophy Society. Our goal is to make philosophy accessible and interesting, to create safe spaces for people to learn about and discuss philosophy, and to expand their horizons. Every week we have a discussion group, a reading and film group, a guest lecture, and academic support. Whether you’re a full-time philosophy student or just peripherally interested, our society is bound to have something that’s just right for you.
Week 9 Events:
Please note: Academic Support times and location have changed this semester

The New Amphion, Teviot Row House (Map)

Thursday Lecture Cancelled
Dr Baldwin’s lecture tomorrow (Thursday, 23rd) has, sadly, been cancelled. We apologise for the inconvenient.
However, to make up for the lecture cancellation, PhilSoc has organised its annual PubQuiz, which will take place on Friday, 24th March!
There will, of course, be some mandatory nerdy philosophical trivia to add some flair, but it won’t be solely about philosophy so do bring along friends and flatmates. Everybody’s welcome; philosopher to non-philosopher, drinker to non-drinker, pubquiz whiz to reluctant acquaintance.
