Interested in exploring philosophy?

Published: Thursday 21st July 2016

Every year ACU’s School of Philosophy hosts talks by visiting international academics, professional philosophers from universities from around Australia, ACU staff and postgraduate students as part of our Philosophy Seminar series.

Our seminars place an emphasis on exploration and constructive exchanges to advance the development of ideas. Philosophy is a discipline with wide application to almost all other areas of academic enquiry including psychology, linguistics, history, medicine, law, theology, art and economics - and this creates an opportunity for robust cross-discipline discussion and the exchange of ideas.

Philosophers working in analytic and continental fields are invited to present with topics chosen from the widest possible range. Topics we explore include History of Philosophy, Philosophy of Religion, Phenomenology, Ethics and Political Philosophy, Metaphysics and Epistemology, Philosophy of Mind, Philosophy of Science and Logic.

The School of Philosophy is delighted to announce these upcoming seminars:
