Syracuse University Department of Philosophy presents

Philosophy Lab helps students critically engage with the world around them. Led by members of SU's Philosophy Department, it offers spaces and strategies for students to raise questions and discuss ideas that matter to them. Topics might include:

  • What distinguishes knowledge from mere opinion? - What makes me the person I am?
  • How should we determine what rules to live by?
  • How should we treat animals?
    Discussion begins on November 11 at 4PM
