What is the Philosophy Symposium?

The Philosophy Symposium of the University of Southern Maine is a student group open to anyone interested in engaging in rigorous and meaningful discussions on a variety of philosophical topics, texts and figures. 

Ultimately, the goal of the Symposium is to offer a space for students to discuss philosophical ideas outside of a classroom setting, while also striving to increase and promote philosophical discussion and understanding.
