A professor of philosophy at a U.S. college writes in with a request for information about undergraduate philosophy clubs:
My university currently does not have a philosophy club. For various reasons my department thinks such a club would be a good idea, and I, perhaps foolishly, volunteered to help get it started.
I have a pair of philosophy majors who are willing to found the organization but we are looking for suggestions about a couple of matters that may be interconnected. First, what are some good ways to recruit other members of the club? Second, what kinds of things should a philosophy club do? I imagine that some of your readers have been involved in philosophy clubs or are at least at schools that have them and could provide some much-needed advice. Thank you.
