Stanford Philosophy is a vibrant intellectual community full of active groups pursuing philosophical interests across a wide range.
In this section of our page, you can explore some of that variety by following the activity of a number of active reading groups and workshops formed by members of the Department. Some of these reading groups focus on exploring domains of common interest in the literature; other workshops are more focused on presentations of the participants’ own work in progress.
You can learn more about each group’s activities by following the links to their pages, or join up by inquiring with a group’s main contact person.
