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 a change to our leaflet, the first evening will not be on Zoom but it will be held at our premises in Islington. This evening is free to attend and gives the opportunity to see if the course is what you are looking for. There will be two full classes with a break in the middle and a chance for refreshments.
*Enrolment* For those wanting to enrol on the full course, you can either do this in advance or at the end of the free introductory evening. Places are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis and the maximum size of each group will be 12. The course will continue in person at our premises (subject to any further government restrictions).
The course evenings start at 7pm and finish at 9.30pm, with a break in the middle. Please arrive promptly, before 7pm where possible.
