Welcome to the Iowa Philosophy Lyceum!
Introducing pre-college students to philosophy and critical thinking.
We are happy to announce the 2020 Iowa Philosophy Lyceum!
The 2020 Iowa Philosophy Lyceum dates are Monday to Friday, June 8-12.
Group presentations will be held on June 12th - parents are welcome!
We will be holding the Lyceum on Zoom this year! The application says that they are due in May, but this is not the case. We will accept applications all the way into June, but please get them in A.S.A.P. The sooner we get them, the sooner we can order books and shirts! Students will receive their t-shirts and philosophy books, but these may arrive after the Lyceum so that we can give everyone enough time to get applications in.
We would like to thank the following institutions for supporting the Philosophy Lyceum at the University of Iowa:
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Iowa
The Department of Philosophy at the University of Iowa
