Progress Report and a Thankyou

With the final editing process for the journal underway, and its release imminent, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of those who took part in the University of Sheffield Philosophy Undergraduate Conference.

Over the two days we heard many fantastic presentations of interesting and innovative philosophical ideas from around the globe. We would especially like to thank the keynote speakers, Dr David Liggins and Dr Yonatan Shemmer for their support and presentations of their own research.

Within the next few weeks we should have finished the final drafts of the third volume of PhilonoUS. From then they will be available on sale from this website.

This will be the current Head Editors last edition of the journal. It was a pleasure to work with all of the department and PhilonoUS team. For all Sheffield students who may wish to get involved, look out for us in freshers week!
