A welcome message from President Jeffrey Senese
Welcome to the Undergraduate Philosophy Society (UPS)! Here at the Philosophy Society, we are interested in a variety of perennial topics regarding: metaphysics, epistemology, ethics and whatever else an inquisitive mind desires to know. In order to engage these topics forcefully, we intend to foster a climate of rigorous debate which prioritizes, above all else, diversity of thought, and pursuantly, the confidence to express those thoughts freely. As such, we welcome all voices and look forward to confronting the problems of philosophy with all others ‘crazy’ enough to join us. – Jeffrey Senese
