UnterGang: The Undergraduate Philosophy Club
UnterGang seeks to provide an atmosphere of intellectual stimulation, conducive to the development of undergraduate students serious about submitting to the rigors of critical philosophical discussion. Pluralist in orientation, UnterGang is open to all voices and perspectives. Our intent is to focus and support student interest in philosophy here at the University of Oregon by offering a focal point for undergraduate activity.
UnterGang aims to offer students ample opportunity to share questions, concerns, and ideas, as well enable undergraduates to articulate their needs to the Philosophy Department. Besides organizing Philosophy Club meetings, UnterGang also alerts students to philosophical events at the U of O and throughout the Northwest, and arranges luncheons and meetings with visiting scholars whenever possible.

Beginning 12 October 2014
Meetings for the Undergraduate Philosophy Club
will be held in Café Roma, 825 East 13th Ave (at Alder Street)
every Sunday at 6pm.
The reading for Sunday October 19 is a selected chapter from Tao Te Ching (Daodejing). For those unfamiliar with Tao/Asian Philosophy, we will be looking into definitions of specific aspects of the text once we are together. The reading is extremely short (only a couple pages long and double spaced), so we’ll definitely be reading over it together and focusing on discussion this week.
The UG Philosophy Club is a hub of social and scholarly activity associated with our Undergraduate program, and it is a great venue for continuing a conversation about all matters philosophical outside of the classroom, and for getting to better know your peers in the program. Everyone is welcome to attend the Club’s meetings at any point during the term.
