Brings together graduate students and faculty with an interest in ancient philosophy, to read classical texts in the original language.

Friends & Eminees Reading Group

Open to graduate students, faculty, and visiting members of the Harvard and MIT philosophical communities, this group discusses working papers in metaphysics and epistemology (broadly understood) presented by its members. For information, see the group webpage.

Harvard-MIT Graduate Philosophy Conference

Each year, a coalition of graduate students at Harvard and MIT organize and present this graduate student conference, typically held in early spring.

Harvard Philosophical Psychology Lab

The Harvard Philosphical Psychology Laboratory is dedicated to examining philosophical problems concerning perception by conducting psychological experiments.

Practice Job Talks

Please click here to view a schedule of Practice Job Talks being given by graduate students.


Sponsored by members of the faculty, the Workshop in Moral and Political Philosophy (M&P) and the Workshop in Metaphysics and Epistemology (M&E) are otherwise open only to advanced graduate students working in the relevant areas.

They meet regularly -- in most cases, once a week -- to discuss the work of the student members, and each of them sponsors two public lectures by invited speakers from outside the Department each year. Please see the colloquia schedule for a schedule of upcoming lectures.
