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.
Fees for the 16-week course are £190, (£130 concessions) inclusive of all hand-outs and printed material.
*First evening free* In order to give as many people as possible the opportunity to attend this taster evening, the introductory evening will be held via Zoom. However, the remainder of the course will be held at our premises as soon as possible, subject to government guidelines.
*Enrolment* For those wanting to enrol on the full course, payment can either be in advance or after the introductory evening. Attendance will be restricted to 12 people on a first-come, first-served basis.
The course evenings start at 7pm and finish at 9.30pm, with a break in the middle.
