The Symposium is an annual conference, which has been held every Spring since 1971. Recent Symposium topics include: Mass Incarceration, Disagreement, the Philosophy of Race, Consciousness, the Philosophy of Science Fiction, Torture, Intellectual Activism, the Philosophy of Emotion, Epistemology, and the Philosophy of Film. Students, faculty, and alumni all participate. Select Philosophy Majors comment on the papers of invited speakers; and alumni present at one session. We are grateful to the hundreds of speakers who have participated over the last four decades!
Held in Summer, budget allowing. The goal of the Fullerton Philosophy Summer Conference (FullPhil) is to move research in a particular area forward.
We have hosted two FullPhil conferences: Empathy (2006); and Virtue and Vice (2008).
