Welcome to PhilSoc

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.
