Practical Philosophy 1: Wisdom

Do any of us really know who we are? Or why? For thousands of years, philosophy has been searching for answers and seeking the truth in everything. Through Practical Philosophy we seek understanding not through theory, but from our own direct experience. Living life to the full.

Introductory Economics with Justice

Economics with Justice seeks to show that freedom and prosperity are possible for people everywhere, providing we follow economic laws and aim for a fair outcome from economic arrangements.

Horizons

An enriching and stimulating range of courses, from Plato to Poetry, Ayurveda to Vedic Maths.

With new courses for September 2022, both online and in-person in London.

Retreats at Waterperry House

The 2022 Programme is open to all students of the School, together with friends and family.

The idea is to share fully the insights into a variety of subjects that have been acquired by members of the School over many years.

Sanskrit for Philosophy students worldwide

Sanskrit courses are provided free of charge but only available to those who are currently enrolled on a philosophy course in the School or associated Schools abroad.
