This club eagerly seeks all students and endeavors to present speakers on subjects, varied to be sure, including an address from Professor Royce
on “Paracelsus,” and an address on college settlements, but aiming always at the more serious side of life.
The last club to be especially mentioned, but not the least in the hearts of its faithful members, is the Philosophy Club
The Philosophy Club, varying from the custom of other clubs, meets at the homes of its members and friends, and spends much time in discussing all things knowable and unknowable.
Usually discussion is begun by one member addressing the club.
We have had, however, the good fortune of addresses from Professor Royce
, Dr. Santayana
and Mr. Parker
Open meetings, too, the Philosophy Club
has held at Fay House. One season Professor Ladd
spoke to us and Miss Thompson
has given the club and its friends a paper on Fichte
That the Philosophy Club
may have a long and prosperous life, that the members may soon solve the problem of the universe, is the wish of all who know its real helpfulness as well as its charm.
Besides all these discussions, the out-doors of Cambridge
lies, an open book before the students, longing perhaps for fresh air and the presence of a congenial companion.
At half past 4 comes a time for wanderings as well as for clubs.
, even, there are beautiful places for wanderings: and on a sunny afternoon the student passes out into a realm of broader land and sky, just as, when the four years are over, she goes forth into a larger world and finds-
A life to live,--And such a life!
To learn, one's lifetime in, and such a world!
