Do you have a favorite philosopher or area of philosophy? Why is it your favorite?
I don’t think I have a ‘favorite philosopher’ because it always changes. There are too many interesting philosophers out there! But, I like José Medina and his book “The Epistemology of Resistance” at the moment. My favorite areas of philosophy would have to be epistemology and philosophy of race. These two areas have had the most impact on my thinking in terms of how I see the world and how I interact with others.
Tell us about the philosophy club and what you do as a group.
The Philosophy Club is a student-run group that organizes meetings to talk about our philosophical interests and socialize with one another. Our meetings are a ‘space’ where students from the department can get to know one another. Moreover, students from outside of the department can cultivate their philosophical interests and understand the major. Aside from running meetings, the Philosophy Club provides opportunities for their members to show their work through student presentations, notifications about call-for-papers or abstracts, and the annual department symposium.
