Those who lack the courage will always find a philosophy to justify it.
Logos: The Cornell University Undergraduate Journal of Philosophy is a refereed journal at the Sage School of Philosophy in Ithaca, New York. An entirely student-run journal, Logos publishes undergraduate work in all branches and traditions of philosophy. Undergraduates round the globe are invited to submit papers annually for peer-review. Accepted papers are published in the current year's edition of Logos, and the authors of the top three submissions are awarded cash prizes.

Life Raft Debate Event Details:
Doors at 4:20pm, event to start at 4:30pm sharp.
Are the liberal arts worthwhile? Any philosopher will tell you that the arts are valuable to society, but could they really compete with more practical disciplines like finance or engineering?
Come see arts (English and philosophy) professors square off against engineering and finance professors in a debate to see who earns the final position in a 'life raft' to rebuild society. The audience will vote and decide who earns the coveted paddle award.
In addition to putting out the journal, Logos also sponsors undergraduate reading and discussion groups, as well as events of more general philosophical interest to the Cornell and surrounding communities. All are welcome and encouraged to attend.
