"Philosophy for Lunch" by the Linguistic Club

The Linguistic Club, led by Teach. Assist. Eldin Milak, organized an event named “Philosophy for lunch”, which was held today in the room 124.

As the name implies, students shared pizza while discussing postmodern philosophy, mainly focusing on Jacques Derrida and the concept of deconstruction. Students had a chance to enjoy the food while contributing to discussion and listening to other students’ observations.

The discussion also involved reading of an excerpt from Derrida’s essay, followed by a philosophical poem written by Wallace Stevens. Everyone left with their bellies full of food and their minds filled with doubts about social structures.
