Welcome to University of Nottingham PhilSoc!
(Sept 2011) - "Philsoc... Perhaps the best society ever" - Oscar Wilde ; 1885
I need not say much more. The year ahead promises thrilling trips, intoxicatingly thought provoking evenings and stuff that is beyond even the reach of dreams.
Dont waste your time. Get involved. -- Roger Smissen, President 11/12
(Sept 2010) - PhilSoc is THE academic society. Only philosophers know how to combine academia and socialising in such a way. Gone are the years of armchair philosophy. Today, enlightenment is reached through a healthy diet of quizzes, sports events and nights out. Expect a great year! -- Tom Ivens, President 10/11
(2009-20010) - PhilSoc aims to support students in learning the philosophical skills of debate and argumentative analysis. These skills are important in taking a degree in philosophy and also in understanding everyday problems and situations; from war and veganism to marketing ploys and advertising gimmicks. So, if you are interested in the ethics of fur or whether we might really be in The Matrix, we might not be able to tell you the answers but we can show you how to find them out. -- Ben Mellor, President 09/10
