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 different locations - currently online due to COVID-19 - more details can be found here. The discussions are designed to be academic, and require commitment on part of the members. We also mix things up by breaking from the usual schedule to include socializing events such as movie nights, hiking etc. Discussions of arranging workshops and seminars are also underway.

We have chosen English as the language of discourse. Parties who are interested in the society but would prefer German should email us; depending on the demand, we may arrange a parallel reading group in German. Knowledge of academic philosophy is a plus, but by no means a pre-requisite to becoming a member.

We are always open to new members; if you wish to join us or just attend a meeting to see what a typical discussion looks like, please fill the form below. If you have any questions, send us an email at philosophia.munich@gmail.com, or contact one of the founders directly. You can also find us on Twitter and Instagram.
