The Talbot Philosophical Society was started in Spring of 2004. Former student Jonathan Reibsamen writes, “Cecilia Stepp, Mark Stepp, Alex Plato, and Eric Peterson were all instrumental in creating the club”. Alex Plato recalls, “I remember one of the first meetings about organizing it and making it happen included Cecilia and Tedla and I. This group started it. It was my idea but I think Cecilia was the first president. I’m fairly sure that there was no official club or society before this, though I can’t be certain there was no informal club.” The first major event was a weekend retreat in 2004.
