Philosophy Club

The purpose of the Philosophy Club is to promote the interdisciplinary utilization of philosophical practices, encourage the critical consideration of topics of interest, and promote the importance of the incorporation of philosophy within other areas of study.

To this end, the Philosophy Club created a guest speaker series, which has included topics such as the following: 

  • "'Haters,' 'Sinners,' and the Rest of Us: The Gay Debate Today" Dr. John Corvino, Professor of Philosophy, Wayne State University (November 2013)
  • "Does Philosophy Matter for Science?" Dr. Shannon Spaulding, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Oklahoma State University (November 2014)
  • "The Internet of Us: Knowing More and Understanding Less in the Age of Big Data" Dr. Michael Lynch, Professor of Philosophy, and Director of the Humanities Institute, University of Connecticut (November 2015)
  • "Killing at a Distance: The Ethics of Drone Warfare" Dr. Bradley J. Strawser, Assistant Professor at the Defense Analysis Department at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, CA. He is also a Research Associate at Oxford University’s Institute for Ethics, Law, and Armed Conflict (ELAC) in Oxford, UK (November 2016)

In 2014, the Philosophy Club earned Henderson State University's first Impact Award "in recognition of their outstanding contribution to Henderson State University."

The Philosophy Club was founded in 2013, and is the first Philosophy Club in the 125 year history of Henderson State University.
