Our Introductory Philosophy Courses are free and online for the Autumn term. You can register your interest in the courses by going online to http://practicalphilosophy.com.
The courses draw on the great philosophical ideas of east and west to examine their influences on our lives and show the way to a deeper understanding of ourselves and the world around us.
They give guidance on the practice of mindful living in daily life and on how to test the ideas presented during each session in our own experience. The approach is practical rather than academic, and no prior knowledge is needed. More detail can be found here where you can see students talking about the courses.
Here are some good reasons why now would be a good time to explore practical philosophy with us:
- There will never be a better time to study philosophy. In these strange times of Covid-19 it is highly relevant to consider the big questions of life: who am I? what is my life for? how can I serve my fellow human beings?
- You'll benefit from some fine, like-minded company to make the coming weeks of restrictions and uncertainty that bit more bearable.
- The stillness exercises that are part of this study are a great help in bringing clarity and steadiness in these times of great change.
