What is Practical Philosophy?

Practical Philosophy is neither an academic study, a history of philosophies, nor even a comparative study of philosophers.

Rather, it is a process by which philosophical principles are tested in the light of experience, so that the value of these principles can be truly known and incorporated into one’s experience of living.

Philosophy works!

Practical Philosophy can really transform your life. Most students, beginning to realise the truth about themselves, wish to continue the journey of self discovery. For them, Practical Philosophy courses continue with weekly meetings, introduction to the practice of meditation and an opportunity to participate and serve the needs of the school.

Our Courses

Practical Philosophy explores the meaning of wisdom, truth and consciousness and the real nature of the human being. Practical Philosophy offers students an effective and novel approach to the great questions of life: Who am I? How can I be truly happy? How can I be at peace? What is the purpose of my life? How may I realise my full potential?
