Philosophy Club is currently active and meets approximately every two weeks in Coleman Hall 2721. All students are welcome to participate and become members of Philosophy Club. This organization has a reputation for presenting popular and controversial forums on issues such as capital punishment, abortion, the metaphysics of time, and the existence of God. Students critique papers, present articles for discussion, show and discuss films, and sponsor panels, debates, and speakers. Fall 2014 Philosophy Club, with the support of a grant from the Jack and Margaret Redden Fund for the Improvement of Undergraduate Instruction, has arranged to bring Dr. Mylan Engel, Jr. from Northern Illinois University to discuss our obligations to animals. The title of Dr. Engel’s talk is “Fishy Reasoning and the Ethics of Eating.” The presentation is Thursday, October 2nd, 4:00 pm in the Doudna Fine Arts Center Lecture Hall. An abridged version of an article related to his talk, “Why You are Committed to The Immorality of Eating Meat,” is available here.
Information about Philosophy Club meeting dates and times is available by emailing Dr. Teresa Britton at email@example.com or by contacting the Philosophy Department Office at 581-3012.
