Analytic philosophy is, by far, the standard type of philosophy taught in Philosophy Departments throughout North America, Britain, Scandinavia, and beyond. Analytic philosophers aim for perspicuity and results. Core areas of analytic philosophy include ethics, epistemology (knowledge), metaphysics (e.g., free will, theism/atheism), philosophy of mind (e.g., consciousness), philosophy of science, and political philosophy.
However, this group will discuss the lighter topics and presume little or no background in formal philosophy. If you want a taste of 'the real stuff' and/or aim to become (or wish you had been) a philosophy major, then our group will be of use to you.
