Butler University's Philosophy Club is a student-run
organization meant to encourage philosophical discussion outside
the classroom and to reflect the genuine interest of our Philosophy
majors and minors (as well as of many other members of the Butler
community) in a wide range of philosophical problems. There are
roughly three meetings every semester and discussion is held in a
generally lively and informal atmosphere.
Our meetings have focused on topics as diverse as justice
understood as fairness, Buddhism - between philosophy and religion,
philosophy as a lifestyle, and the nature of political freedom.
Occasionally the Philosophy Club holds its meetings jointly with
similar organizations (e.g. when focusing on debates about
political theories or religious issues) or cosponsors talks given
by various philosophers.
Renato Puga, 2013-2014 Top Butler Male Student, is the
Philosophy Club President for 2014-2015. Dr. Stuart Glennan is
the faculty advisor of the Philosophy Club, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some of our recent meetings were devoted to discussing
philosophical aspects of parenthood, the aesthetics of jokes, the
ethical implications of the Occupy movement, the(im)possibility of
amoralism etc. Announcements about the Club's meetings are posted
online on the Butler Connection and in other physical and virtual
venues. Students are encouraged to suggest topics for the upcoming
meetings of the club.

Specialist in the Department of Philosophy and Religion, or the
Department Head, Chad Bauman (firstname.lastname@example.org).
