The 2017 Joint Session in Philosophy
The largest gathering of philosophers in the country is underway at the University
The 91st Joint Session of the Aristotelian Society and the Mind Association started today at the School of Philosophy, Psychology & Language Sciences.
The three-day conference in philosophy is held every summer and this year the local organiser was our philosophy lecturer Aidan McGlynn.
Rich history of philosophy study
First held in 1910, the Joint Session has taken place at nearly every major university in the UK and Ireland.
It attracts a broad range of important philosophers from all parts of the world.
The symposium format of the conference provides a rare opportunity to witness live and engaging debates between leading philosophers.

Watch out for our philosophy lecturer Debbie Roberts in Symposium V.
In ancient Greece, the symposium was a lively discussion that took place after a dinner party or a celebratory meal.
