Philosophy Exchange – A new study and feedback space for LSE Philosophy Undergraduates


View the schedule

Like an Attic agora bustling with socratic questions or a Popperian salon where every assertion is severely tested, the Undergraduate Philosophy Exchange is the home for students with a love of wisdom.

Run by the Department of Philosophy, Logic & Scientific Method, the Philosophy Exchange is a space for feedback and study staffed by teachers from the Department.

New System, More Office Hours. In place of class teachers holding just one weekly office hour in the Lakatos building per week, now experts on your course material (including your class teachers) will be in the Exchange for multiple hours per week to give you feedback. The Exchange is open four days a week for individual feedback as well as group study sessions, covering the full range of philosophy undergraduate course topics.

Lots of experts. With up to three class teachers at any one time, the Philosophy Exchange is the place to go for more feedback and more advice.

Collaboration Station

If you would like to find others to work with or bring an organised study group, then the Philosophy Exchange is the perfect place for you to meet and exchange knowledge.



A Space of Reasons

If you are looking for a study space suited for serious philosophical work then look no further than the Philosophy Exchange. You will have access to power outlets, whiteboards and occasional refreshments, as well as the pleasure of being surrounded by people to whom modus ponens is no mystery.
