Welcome to School of Philosophy Kent

A ten week evening course in Practical Philosophy

 

Online courses, delivered live via the Zoom app, will start on Monday 18 January 2021. The cost of the course will be at the reduced rate of £10. Here are details of the offering and how to find your course.

Because of the restrictions caused by the Corona virus outbreak we cannot offer Practical Philosophy courses face to face. We hope that these will start in May in Tonbridge, Maidstone and Canterbury.

If you would like to be updated on this date please contact us and leave your details.

 

The content of the School of Philosophy and Economics course is drawn from the great philosophic ideas of East and West. You may stay as long as you like; for a term, a year, or a lifetime.

The approach is practical rather than academic. i.e. not a dry survey of great philosophical ideas as one might find in a university. Instead we offer exercises to refine the power of reason, attention and self-reliance which, if practiced, will produce over time a living philosophy that is of real value in meeting the challenges of daily life.

The courses lead to effective reasoned action in work, study and play. The emphasis is on learning from the most powerful of teachers; our own experience. Being present and mindful allows knowledge and love to work together to produce wisdom. Our aim is to equip you to uncover the unity underpinning everything.
