We are in the midst of a re-launch of the Philosophy Club.  Part of this re-launch is a merging of the Philosophy Club with Phi Sigma Tau (the philosophy honors society).  Now we could simply call it “Phi Sigma Tau Philosophy Club.”  But perhaps there is a better name out there for it.

ADDENDUM: If you are interested in adding your name to a Philosophy Club email list, please send a note to

    Something existential this way comes, for the summer. (Maybe The Plague?)
