The aim of the Philosophy & Debating Society is to provide a place where students can get together to talk philosophy and to debate topics of interest to them.
We separate our philosophy and debating events, so you can engage with whichever part you're interested in. The first event of every week focuses on philosophy and takes place in the form of 'hangouts'. You do not need to have any prior knowledge of philosophy to join in, just an interest in the subject and a willingness to keep things civil!
The second weekly event focuses on debating, this takes place in two 1 hour debating sessions on topics voted on by the members present. While the debating sessions are more formal than the 'hangouts', you shouldn't fear not having debating experience. We're here to help each other improve and there's still plenty of space for friendly banter.
Additionally, the Philosophy & Debating society hosts occasional events such as inviting guest speakers to give talks, movie screenings, debating skills & strategy coaching sessions and debating competitions! If you are interested in joining, please click the join button at the top of the page.
