Hint: Who are those three faces?

Philosophy S.P.A. Club

The Philosophy S.P.A. Club is a spa of reason where the philosophical ideas and methods from the tradition of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle and their transcultural predecesors and successors are explored and applied to everyday life. Student led activities include hosting and attending lectures by faculty and student philosophers; discussion forums on ethics, metaphysics, contemporary issues and films; debates, conscientious projects and peer tutoring and more!
