The Philosophy Club at University of California, Irvine is proud to announce the commencement of Falsafa ([n.] ‘Philosophy’ in Urdu), our biannual undergraduate philosophy journal. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to get involved in formal, academic philosophical discourse. For those looking to do graduate-level work in philosophy or simply pursue academia, submitting to Falsafa will be an exciting and beneficial opportunity. Moreover, Falsafa aims to highlight philosophical ideas and research in marginalized/underrepresented sub-disciplines, and aims to encourage work by undergraduates within the same.

We welcome submissions on topics pertaining to philosophy. We will, however, prefer submissions in the following fields (in no particular order):

  • African Philosophy
  • Native American Philosophy
  • Chinese Philosophy
  • Indian Philosophy
  • Islamic Philosophy
  • Latin American Philosophy
  • Asian Philosophy
  • Feminist Philosophy
  • Philosophy of Race, Gender, and/or Sexuality

About The Philosophy Club

The Philosophy Club is an open and free space for all students interested in philosophical topics. We meet on Thursdays of each month, from 6:30pm-7:30pm at the Melden Library (HIB 58). We host a wide array of events on several issues pertaining to philosophy.  These include discussions with curated readings, movie nights, guest lectures by members of the staff, and much more…

Our goal is to transcend the boundaries of academic philosophy and open the space for all issues that foster our growth as inquirers. Moreover, we wish to provide a safe, supportive and welcoming environment for all students. We will maintain trust and an ethos of respect for differing viewpoints. Members are expected to be considerate, open-minded and patient when expressing their views and responding to points-of-view with which they disagree. We aim to have a diverse approach to texts and cultivate an inclusive outlook towards philosophical discussion.
