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 that transfixes her--that is our impossible goal.
