Welcome to School of Philosophy Oxford

A ten week evening course

Who We Are

The Search for Truth - the history of the School on YouTube (7 minutes)

The School of Philosophy and Economic Science, with Head Offices in London, has branches across the UK and we are centred in Oxford. Further information on the School as a whole is available through the website schoolofphilosophy.org

Both the parent school and its branches are run as an independent educational charity.

In normal times, we meet one evening a week in three ten-weekly terms per year. The Introductory Course lasts one year and is in three parts.  Those completing the course can, if they wish, return for further terms where the issues covered in the course are examined in greater detail. At that stage, students have the opportunity to be introduced to meditation.

We meet at Eckersley House, a language school at 14 Friars Entry, Oxford, OX1 2BZ. Refreshments are served midway through the evening when students have the opportunity to meet and mingle with students doing other courses, whether philosophy or economics. Tutors are senior students of the School and offer their time for free; the fees we charge are solely to cover the costs of the building and administration.

Next 10 week Introductory Course starts Monday 26th September 2022 , 19:15 - 21:30 in central Oxford.
