Philosophia Munich is a student-run philosophy society. It aims to foster discussions and awareness of core philosophical themes at the Technische Universität (TUM) and the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) München. The themes include ethics, epistemology, language, free will and consciousness among others. A common feature of the topics is their timeless nature; debates on some of these date back centuries.

We offer two distinct discussion tracks:

  • Foundations track, where members participate in an introductory philosophy course

  • Paper track, where members discuss selected papers

Each track is offered on alternate Tuesdays at 19:00. Meetings take place at TUM main campus, Arcisstraße. The discussions are designed to be academic and require commitment on part of the members. You can find more information about our meeting structure here. We also mix things up by breaking from the usual schedule to include socializing events such as film nights, hikes, etc. Discussions of arranging workshops, guest speakers, and seminars are also underway.

We have chosen English as the language of discourse. Depending on the demand, we may arrange a German reading group on site. Knowledge of academic philosophy is a plus but by no means a pre-requisite to becoming a member - everyone is welcome.

We are always open to new members - no matter if you are student or not; if you wish to join us or just attend a meeting to see what a typical discussion looks like, please fill out the form by clicking the button below.
