The Philosophy Society is a student-run group open to everyone at Rutgers with an interest in philosophy. Its goal is to generate dialogue between different departments and contribute to the growth in students’ critical sensibilities. Every few weeks or so, the society sponsors a lecture by a professor, usually on a topic of his or her choice, although special interest requests can be made. Club members are not required to be majoring or minoring in philosophy or religion, although members are encouraged to have some basic knowledge in either field. Above all, the Philosophy Society is not a cult; we encourage dialogue from a variety of departments and points of view.

An outgrowth of the society is an online location, Philosophy Society at, where students may view announcements, access resources, and engage in dialogue with other students, as well as faculty members. Those interested should contact a current officer of the club or faculty adviser, Melissa Yates
