Course programme

PHILOSOPHY IS PRACTICAL

A tutor presents material, and leads a discussion based on what arises. Being practical rather than academic, the emphasis is on personal knowledge. Students are encouraged neither to accept nor reject the ideas put forward, but to test them in practice for themselves, in the light of their own experience.

In this way, for those who wish, the whole week between classes can become a learning opportunity.

As the course continues, the most vivid and valuable part of the evening meetings is often sharing what has been seen in daily life between individual sessions.

Stimulating discussion from tutor-led open ended questions.
