Season 2023/24

The Royal Philosophical Society of Glasgow was founded in 1802, when the term ‘philosophy’ meant knowledge in the broadest sense. The Society provides stimulating lectures and discussion for members on a great diversity of topics.

As the 222nd season approaches its end, and we are now planning the lectures, member trips and events for next season, beginning in September 2024.

See below for details of the exciting line-up of speakers for the rest of our current season.

If you are someone who enjoys learning about what is happening in the world around you, being introduced to new discoveries and exposed to new ideas, and are not already a member, then join us and expand your horizons!

See our YouTube videos about the Society on our video page.
