What philosophers believe, Mon 20 May, 4-5.30pm, ic1.108, @Deakin Waurn Ponds campus

What philosophers believe
Monday 20 May from 4-5.30pm in ic1.108 on the WP campus

Okay, Monday's meeting, 4-5.30pm in ic1.108 on the Waurn Ponds campus, at it we'll discuss what (professional) philosophers believe.

Those of you who mix in philosophy circles may have heard about the survey of professional philosophers conducted through PhilPapers. The post-survey discussion has focused on the question about belief in God. 73% of philosophers surveyed are atheists.

We'll discuss the questions, the responses, may even answer the questions ourselves, and will have a jolly good time doing it.
