Occasionally referred to as the "Cal Poly Philosophy Club," POLYHYMNIA
actually arose from the ashes of that former organization to replace it as
the "official" ASI club devoted to the act of philosophy. POLYHYMNIA
"followers" frequently meet to
philosophize, either at a house, downtown, or in some fabulous natural setting. Polyhymnia, the muse of
the sacred hymn, is one source of inspiration for the club members. When
pictured, she is always veiled and
contemplative, her unspoken thoughts a symbol of hidden mystery. To stumble
upon the thought that transfixes her--that is our impossible goal.
- As an organization that devotes itself to encouraging philosophical thought,
POLYHYMNIA offers the following resources:
- The best list
resources on the Web
One-Stop research page
The POLYHYMNIA picture album
- Here is a list of members who are on the Web:
- Dan Benveniste
- Dave Horacek
- Jennifer Taylor
Though this is a short list, we also keep a mailing list of more than 50
members, who regularly get information on POLYHYMNIA meetings and activities,
as well as other philosophy-related events around San Luis Obispo. All you need
to do to get on our mailing list is to mail Dave and tell him to
send information to your e-mail address.
All members with WWW pages who want to be listed here should do likewise.
If you have further questions about POLYHYMNIA you can also ask Dave.
