Lund Philosophical Society's Centennial Celebration

25 May 2022 15:00 to 23:59 Other

Our society was founded 100 years ago this year, in 1922. To celebrate we are throwing a Centennial Celebration. We are pleased to announce that on Wednesday the 25th of May, four esteemed former members and board members will be returning to offer philosophical talks and reflections on their time with the society. These will be combined with an afternoon reception – weather permitting, out of doors – and followed by a buffet dinner and an evening of celebration and conversation in our best philosophical traditions.
