Next Steps in Philosophy

The School of Philosophy is inviting students currently in Parts 1, 2 and 3 to a “relaxing day out”.  It is a series of interesting talks and interactive exercises in a very lovely country house.

This unique day with the theme of Who Am I is designed to help you understand more about yourself and how the practice of philosophy can increase your everyday awareness and help you to live a happier life.

During the day, you will have the opportunity to explore more deeply some of the subjects we have discussed in our groups and test their validity in practice.

The aim of practical philosophy is simple:- to help you become more aware of what is going on around you, to understand yourself and other people and to try to act wisely when making decisions.

Only when these three are working well can a person begin to realise their true potential.


Why is it so cheap?

We are an educational charity and the fee is aimed just to cover our costs on the day. The fee for the introductory Part One course is subsidised by fees paid by other students, thereafter fees are set just to cover costs. No one in the school receives payment for tutoring or the service they provide. Lunch is provided. It is vegetarian, which we find suits people of all faiths and diets.

Can I bring a friend?

Yes, whilst this is aimed at those who are already enjoying the course, if you have a friend or partner you think would be interested, speak to your tutor to see if we have space.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Travelling by car is the only practical way as public transport is very limited. There is ample on site parking. Directions to Brinscall Hall can be found on our Contact page at www.brinscallhall.co.uk If you experience difficulties finding us please ring 01254 832111 or 07885 408636
