Phi Sigma Tau Honor Society


Phi Sigma Tau (PST) is the International Honor Society in Philosophy. The University of Scranton's chapter, Penn-Tau, began in 1980. Philosophy majors and minors in the junior and senior classes are eligible for induction each spring.  For more on the society, see here.

Philosophy Cafe:

PST at the University of Scranton holds various events on campus throughout the academic year. The most popular activity is the "Philosophy Cafe" series, which is now co-sponsored by PST and the Philosophy Society. Professors from various departments are invited to present on a topic of their choice and subsequently host a discussion. For flyers from previous cafe talks, see here, here, and here.


Discourse is the undergraduate journal of philosophy sponsored by the Penn-Tau chapter of Phi Sigma Tau at the University of Scranton. The goal of this journal is to provide an open forum for a variety of arguments and ideas. Submissions in both creative and traditional styles are welcome.

  See here to find the journal in the library catalogue.

Paper Contest:

Discourse publishes the top papers submitted to the annual Phi Sigma Tau paper contest. Papers are selected through a blind review process by three faculty members. It also publishes short pieces submitted directly to the journal. These selections are made anonymously by the editors.  Click here for a list of past paper contest winners.
