SOME NOTES ON OUR PHILOSOPHY COURSE OFFERINGS:

  • All classes are taught from an objective point of view. These are classes about philosophy, designed for participants to get a greater understanding of the depth and scope of the diversity that exists within the world’s various philosophical, historical, cultural, ethnic, faith and belief traditions.
  • Detailed Syllabi are available at the start of each Term.
  • Any Term can be taken independently of the others, and there are no prerequisites for any of the Term courses.
  • All classes encourage questions and group discussion. There are no assignments, required readings, quizzes, tests or exams.
  • PDF copies of each class presentation are emailed to all participants the next day so that you are free to focus on class content rather than taking notes. You are most welcome to come, sit back, relax, take part in and enjoy the discussions!
  • Course fees include a short tea/coffee/snack break in the middle of each session.
  • There are no refunds for missed classes.
