Welcome to our new website!

We have had a busy year this year with our latest event being an evening on August 1 2006 at the ANU co-coordinated by Dr Winifred Wing Han Lamb on What can we know? Conversations on scepticism, fundamentalism and faith. The evening consisted of three short talks on scepticism and the rise of fundamentalism within North American Protestant fundamentalism in the early 1900's and was chaired by Dr. Simon Haines, ANU.


SOPHY held workshop in August Dr Simon Haines, Head of School of Humanities, ANU and Prof Phil Cam, Philosophy Dept UNSW gave excellent presentations this was followed by demonstrations of what philosophy lessons can look like in a range of classrooms.
