Welcome to School of Philosophy Oxford

A ten week evening course

PRACTICAL PHILOSOPHY- Next term is still free!


We are sorry to announce that due to the uncertainty regarding the control of the virus we shall not be offering classes at our Oxford venue in September. We hope to resume here the following term.

HOWEVER we are pleased to announce that the introductory course will be offered for free again next term, online, starting on W/C 21st September.

At this time when everyone in the whole world is facing a new situation and we all need to play our part in protecting those who might be particularly vulnerable, this still seems to be wise.

Living wisely is at the heart of our Practical Philosophy course.  At a time when so many are faced with challenges in this situation we are keen to continue to offer our course to as many as want it.

This ten-week course is designed to calm the mind and help uncover the true self. Practice of exercises drawn from philosophical traditions of both East and West allow freedom from petty concerns and help us learn to distinguish what is important from what is not. These exercises, if they become part of everyday life, reconnect us with the present moment that is the essence of mindfulness. 

Group discussion over three terms includes topics such as wisdom, consciousness, reason, beauty and the unity underlying all things.

The next term starts on Monday September 21st and runs for 10 sessions
