Reading Groups

Open to members of the University community


Ancient Philosophy Reading Group The starting point and focus of our discussions are the ancient texts themselves. Each session, one member of the group translates the text and starts off discussion, with all members interrupting and actively participating as the mood strikes. Contact: Victor Caston for more information.

Foundations of Modern Physics Reading Group  Rackham-funded interdisciplinary reading group which focuses on the philosophy of physics and related areas of physics and philosophy. Graduate students and faculty from any department are welcome. For more information, visit our website and e-mail Josh Hunt to be added to the mailing list.

Epistemology Reading Group (EPiG) EpiG is a group which meets bi-weekly to read contemporary papers in epistemology (broadly construed). The topics read range from issues in traditional epistemology, formal epistemology, the intersection of the two, and even some decision theory. Contact Daniel Drucker for times, locations, reading lists, or anything else related to the group.
