Philosophers' Forum

Philosophers' Forum

The Philosophers’ Forum is a organization of students  to provide a forum for the discussion of philosophers and philosophical ideas, to provide assistance to those with questions concerning both general and specific philosophical concepts, and to discuss career choices for philosophy graduates. The Forum is dedicated to strengthening the already vibrant philosophical community at UMSL and in the greater St. Louis area. 

Some of our activities include hosting a series of talks by both professional philosophers and graduate students where they will present "works in progress." This WiP series offers the chance to see philosophers in action and offers the Saint Louis community a chance to see what is being done in philosophy. In addition, our annual conference focuses on a different topic each year and attracts a wide range of professional philosophers and graduate students working in those areas.
