Welcome to the University of Birmingham Philosophy Society.
PhilSoc is for anyone with an interest in philosophy. Philosophy is a universal subject manifested in ethics of politics, law and science. If you've ever questioned the law, certain societal conventions, or reality itself then you are a philosopher! 
We organise social events like pub quizzes, bar crawls and nights out as well as intellectually focused events like 'think and drinks' which is basically like informal debating. We will have a 'theme' for each think and drink, our theme will last two weeks and will incorporate the subject of a guest speaker we may have for that fortnight. 
We are inclusive, and are looking into holding joint society events to better the student body and connect philosophy to its complementary topics and subjects from other departments. 
How will our £3 membership benefit you?
