What we're about

Claremont Philosophers is your group to learn, share, and teach within a community of people dedicated to using knowledge to make the most of this rather unlikely thing called "life" we find ourselves endowed with.

From college kids, to retired business people, from PhDs to those who have never cracked open a philosophy book before, our group is about inclusion, while at the same time having what Nietzsche called the "courage for an attack on [our] convictions."

Any topic that can benefit from scrutiny and drive us towards introspection is game. We have discussed everything from the disability community and feminism, to Kant, determinism, and the philosophy of science. We look forward to discussing the topics you suggest!

Upcoming events (5+)

Weekly Reading Group at the Claremont Colleges (or on discord)

We meet via discord [ https://discord.gg/hZq6b2n ] or in the IFC Library, room 106 of Vita Nova Hall at Scripps College, your choice!. We meet every Friday to discuss topics of philosophy, or to analyze issues outside of the discipline through a philosophical lens. Please ask if you would like to know what the reading is for an upcoming meeting. However, you are not required to have done the reading. The best way to keep up with the group, is just to come. We are always excited to have new members. If you do not have the time to do the reading, or are not even sure what it is, come anyways! We will get you caught up. We are open to all members of the community. We would like as much diversity in thought and background as possible. No background in philosophy is necessary -- though it does not hurt! We also have a Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/claremontphilosophers/
