Think Tank is a student-run club for philosophy majors, minors and anyone else who has an interest in talking about philosophy. Membership is free. There is a Think Tank event almost every week during the academic year.

Previous activities have included:

  • A weekly informal discussion at Java Aroma. Some of the many topics were:
    • Where does morality come from?
    • What is art?
    • Is the mind in the brain?
    • Does God exist?
  • A viewing of "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" at the Pacific Theater, followed by a discussion led by Professor Rennard
  • The Philosopher Dinner in the Redwood Room, featuring food from Papapavlo's Mediterranean Bistro
  • A two-day trip by students to the Pacific Division Meeting of the American Philosophical Association (APA) in San Francisco
  • An end-of-the-year barbeque at Professor Rennard's home

Future events:

  • A continuation of the weekly discussion at Java Aroma
