Philosophy Forum (PF)

/CFAF/SiteAssets/SitePages/Forum/phil.jpgMission: To promote the intellectual and personal development of cadets by exposing them to diverse, philosophically stimulating ideas and personalities.  The two mediums for this exposure are the speakers that the forum brings to West Point, and the trips that occur each semester.

Typical activities: hosting distinguished philosophers from around the country (and world) to give talks to the members of the club and members of the philosophy faculty as well.  The club will often take one trip during the year to another college to take part in a undergraduate philosophy conference.
