Of all the places you could be, of all the web pages you could be looking at, why this one?
Socrates (469 – 399 BC) said: 'The unexamined life is not worth living'. At some time, who hasn't asked: Why am I here? Why am I here, now?
Down the ages, questions like these have led men and women to search and search. A few seem to have found, if not all the answers, then ways of tackling such questions that helped them to enjoy richer, less stressful and more useful lives.
This course of ten sessions, called Practical Philosophy, looks to some of the great philosophical traditions for direction and inspiration. Among subjects explored are: Consciousness; Wisdom; Peace; Life in the Present; Injustice; Being Yourself.
