If you are even vaguely familiar with German and Ancient Greek philosophers, you will get a kick out of this funny clip!
My apologies for not keeping in touch with you as much I would have liked this semester. I am planning on having two more cafe philo before the semester ends. The next cafe philo will be April 23rd at 6:30pm in the Philosophy Lounge in Coughlin Hall. The next cafe philo will serve as a celebration for reaching the end of the semester. This will be on May 2nd at 7pm in the Lounge as well. Food and drink will be provided for both events. On April 20th beginning at 10am in Lalumeire Hall, phi sigma tau and the philosophy club are proud to present the 6th annual “Life Examined” Undergraduate Philosophy Conference. This is a great way to see philosophy in action. Tell your friends!

Undergraduate Philosophy Conference

Call for Papers
The Marquette Undergraduate Philosophy Committee is looking for submissions for our 5th annual Life Examined spring conference, aimed at encouraging dialogue between students and the audience about important philosophical topics.
We welcome papers from undergraduate students on any topic of philosophy. Selection criteria will include both overall quality as well as diversity of theme and thesis. Submissions should be approximately 8-10 pages. Longer papers will be considered but presenters will have 20 minutes to present their work.
Submission deadline: March 8th, 2013.
Send submissions, prepared for blind peer review, as an email attachment to email@example.com
In the body of the email include the author’s name, college affiliation, contact information, and title of the paper. Include no identifying information in the file with the paper. Decisions will be made by late-March.
For more information, email Calvin Nixon with any questions.
As we kick-off another year, the Philosophy Club has a renewed mindset to make philosophy “enjoyable” again at Marquette University. It is understandable that the study of philosophy is not the easiest subject from which to choose, but my hope is to make it interesting at our bi-weekly “Cafe Philo” meetings in Coughlin Hall. As the new President of the Philosophy Club, it is a true pleasure to work and engage with like-minded and motivated undergraduate students who enjoy good discussion surrounding big key issues whether it be in politics, ethics, or feminism. With that said, I am excited to blaze this new path with you and promote this ancient discipline to the best of my ability.
