Philosophy means love of wisdom (philo-sophia) and it is essentially an active attitude of awareness towards life. In this sense, we are all born philosophers, with an innate need to ask questions and with the intuition that there are answers to be found.
Every civilisation has passed on to us its experience and understanding of life. However, most of us have only a basic knowledge of philosophy and have had little opportunity to learn about the vast heritage of ideas that have inspired and guided humanity throughout history. This 16-week course will introduce you to the major concepts of Eastern and Western Philosophy and explore their relevance and practical application for our lives.
