VSV philosophy students shine at event

Philosophy club 2

How do you know if change is good or bad? This was just one of the questions recently discussed by VSV’s Philosophy Club at a state-wide Philosophy in Public Places event held via zoom at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV).

The event focused thinking around the theme of NGV’s current exhibition –We Change the World.

VSV’s Philosophy Club convener, Julian Lowndes, was impressed with VSV students’ valuable contributions to the dialogue.

‘Thanks to VSV Philosophy Club members Sonya B., Jessica V., Jeremy M. and Aden B. who all contributed brilliantly to philosophical dialogue to further thinking on the role of change in our everyday lives as well as more broadly in society,’ said Julian.

The forum raised a number of topical questions, including:

· To what extent can a person influence change?

· What factors have to change for a change to be classified as a change?

· What gives a society power?

The Philosophy Club meets every Wednesday at 1.00 pm. If you would like to be part of VSV’s philosophy club please email [email protected]
