The Melbourne School of Philosophy has been offering philosophy courses in Melbourne since 1977 and is a great place for the curious to further their enquiry into the practical nature of wisdom.
Described variously by its students as a “place to discuss the big questions”, a “space to share in a diversity of opinions”, or that “it opens up different ways to view the everyday”, the Melbourne School of Philosophy is a not-for-profit organisation welcoming those interested in the pursuit of a deeper understanding of themselves and a greater sense of meaning and well-being.
Drawing from both Eastern and Western wisdom traditions, the School’s approach to the study of philosophy has been practical from the beginning, is entirely based on voluntary participation by its members and proceeds on the principle that the teacher never ceases being a student. Our courses ask the student to neither accept nor reject what is presented but to test it in the light of their own experience.
Term 1 2021 runs from Monday 1st February for twelve weeks.
Our next Introductory Course ‘The Wisdom Within’ begins Monday 8th February until Sunday 18th April.
