Created and successively run by philosophy students at Cal State L.A., the Philosophy Club serves to provide an environment in which students at CSULA may meet and discuss philosophy outside of the classroom. Although there is no formal procedure for joining (participation constitutes membership), we do encourage those interested to join our mailing list. Send your request to: csulaphilosophyclub@gmail.com. Those on the list will be notified of all upcoming club activities, the bulk of which will be of four types:

1_General Meetings

We meet every week on campus, usually between 3:15 and 4:15pm. The particular days vary from semester to semester. Be sure to check the “Meetings” tab for scheduled days and times. This is a good time for interested students to meet and chat with those currently active in the club, for active members to propose ideas for upcoming club activities, and for all to “talk shop.” Remember, you do not have to be a philosophy major to join! Anyone is welcome to attend the meetings. Even if you cannot stay for the whole duration of the meeting, you can come and go as you please.

2_Discussion Groups

We try to meet at least every other month to read and discuss influential papers, films, music, etc. within a particular area of philosophy. Typically, one of our members will propose a certain reading or topic of discussion and prepare and lead us in an in-depth discussion of that paper or topic. If you think you might like to lead a discussion group meeting, stop by one of our general meetings and let us know. (Grads! Please join-in!)


We freely schedule club activities just to do something fun together. We might go to a movie, meet at an art museum, play card or board games, throw a party, or get together for any other reason that might interest us. Such events have been known to generate philosophical discussions lasting well into the wee hours. 🙂


We host here an open-forum blog—focused on, but not limited to, philosophical discussion—made available by the Philosophy Club for all to use, regardless of one’s interest in or involvement with club activities on the whole.

  1. Aside from gaining access to your exclusive content, you can
    be as relaxed as possible. Decrease networking effortsWhenever you get more twitter followers,
    you will need to combine this with specialized attributes and features about your website or blog.
    This is because it is highly rated, more and more people joined it.
    With that said, how do you get all of those people to follow

  2. Do you ever have guest speakers?

    If so, I would like to come and present the key new ideas in my free e-book: “How to Believe in God and Science — In Three Easy Steps” to your group.

    I have worked on this problem for all of my life. I am recently retired from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and now have the time to present these ideas to others.

    Here is some information about my free e-book:

    There are many good reasons to believe in God, but for some people there are also issues, or roadblocks, to having the belief. Some of these issues are related to what we know from science but there are also other types of issues. This book is the culmination of over fifty years of trying to reconcile my beliefs. If you have any issues blocking your faith in God, saddle up and take a ride with me.

    This e-book is free and downloadable from my website at the address below.

    Please call, text or email me if you have any questions.

    Joe Pro…
