The Deakin Philosophical Society (Est. 2004) is a society for philosophical discussion based at Deakin University’s Waurn Ponds campus, Australia. The society meets every Wednesday of the university year (except exam periods) for an exchange of truth, wisdom and red wine. Any undergraduates, postgraduates, faculty members, staff or interested persons (or non-persons) are welcome.

The society seeks to bring together students, staff and members of the community to foster philosophical dialogue and provide a forum whereby people can engage philosophically and, hopefully, develop as philosophers. To achieve this aim the society provides fora for philosophical discourse on campus and throughout the community via weekly meetings, monthly philosophy cafés and other events.
