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.
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.
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.
