Philosophia Munich is a student-run philosophy society, officially accredited at Technische Universität (TUM) and Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) München . It aims to foster discussions and awareness of core philosophical themes in Munich and is also open to non-students. 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:
Paper track, where members discuss selected papers
Foundations track, where members focus on introductory material of a selected topic
Each track is offered on alternate Tuesdays at 19:00. Meetings usually take place at TUM main campus, Arcisstraße. The discussions are designed to be academic and require commitment on part of the members; that is, you have to read the material that we discuss in our meetings. You can find more information about our meeting structure here. We also mix things up by including socialising events, such as film nights and hikes, and other academic events, such as guest speaker events.
We chose English as the language of discourse. Depending on the demand, we may arrange a German discussion 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.
