Graduate Philosophy Association

Silhoutte of grad student

The Graduate Philosophy Association (GPA) is active in promoting a positive environment for the student community and promoting interaction with the larger philosophical community. Our graduate students usually host at least one conference per academic year.

Join us on Saturday, October 6, for the 2018 Graduate Student Conference on Metaphysics. The key note speaker is Achille C. Varzi (Columbia). Varzi will discuss our tendency to find patterns in the world and use them to obtain laws according to which the world is organized. He deals with Hume's problem of induction by starting with a game in which the audience attempts to guess the next number in some number sequences.
