The Philosophy Club will hold its first meeting of the semester on Wedneday, Feb. 6 at 7pm in the Race Room in the LBC. We will be discussing the ethics of "Designer DNA". Snacks and refreshments will be served, and there will be free Philosophy Club stickers available for all in attendance!

Basic Income is an audacious idea—a regular, unconditional cash grant for everyone as a right of citizenship. Yet, growing numbers of people have come to support it, believing not only that welfare systems around the world are too stingy but also that they’re based on an entirely wrong approach.

Nathan Biebel, a PhD student in the philosophy department, will lead a discussion on personal identity. We will be asking questions like: What makes me the same person today that I was yesterday? that i have the same body? the same personality? similar thoughts, feelings, and emotions? that i simply believe that I am the same person? In what sense, anyway, am i really the same person today that i was yesterday? Snacks and free Philosophy Club stickers will be available :)

Join us for the first meeting of the 2018-19 academic year for the Tulane Philosophy Club - learn about the Club, meet other interested students, help us plan a schedule of great events for this year, and enjoy delicious snacks and refreshments. All people and opinions are welcome!
