Our society has its roots in a number of informal get-togethers between two Physics and two Philosophy postgrads in the Spring of
2011. In the summer of 2011, PhysPhil was founded by William Simpson for
the purpose of bringing together a number of postgrads with shared interests for dialogue and discussion on a semi-regular basis. Our meetings
take place in the Physics & Astronomy Building (usually room 338). We are not affiliated with the student union at this time.
Our meetings consist of a discussion of set readings and presentations (given by members and invited speakers).
Our recent meetings have touched on the following topics:
- August 26th - The nature of science and the nature of the physical world. (William Simpson)
- September 9th - Human nature and the nature of reality (Kaley McCluskey, Ryan Mullins)
- September 26th - The concept of time in Physics and Metaphysics (Simon Horsley, Ryan Mullins)
On Tuesday, Sept 11th, we have our first, international, PhysPhil conference - "A Brief Look at the Big Picture".
