Welcome Back, Returning Philosophy Undergraduates – Reception/Panels on Imagine UBC Day

Dear philosophy students,

 

Please join us on Tuesday, Sept. 5, between 2-4 p.m., for a welcome-back reception and light-hearted panel discussions of subjects of potential interest to philosophy undergraduate students.

 

You’ll have a chance to query some of our faculty (including the undergraduate majors advisor) who will be impaneled to discuss:

 

What is philosophy?

How can philosophy be “applied” to non-philosophical issues?

How can you get the most out of your philosophy courses/degree?

 

And all answers will be kept to 60 seconds or less!

 

We’ll also have a few brisk rounds of “Philosophers Against Humanity”

and possibly spontaneous debates on philosophical claims such as:

 

You have reason to do what’s right.

All knowledge is based in experience.

I am not a brain in a vat.

 

And there will be refreshments and free stuff!

 

Hope you can join us on Tuesday, September 5, between 2-4 p.m. in Buchanan D324 (the Philosophy Department seminar room).
