Philosophy – The Path Less Travelled

The Melbourne School of Philosophy is delighted to offer an on-line, interactive series of five talks that have been designed for deep thinking people pondering life’s bigger questions, or for those who may be interested in Philosophy itself, but have little or no experience with the subject. The course is intended to give a simple ‘snapshot’ of how philosophy may be made practical.

‘Philosophy – The Path Less Travelled’ is being presented for those seeking to enrich daily life, participate in facilitated discussion, gain insight through practice, and enjoy like-minded company.


The course is neither academic nor theoretical, but using both inquiry and a simple contemplative approach, we introduce and consider statements drawn from various philosophical systems reflecting common and universal principles that can be applied today.

Peter Farago first met the School of Philosophy over 40 years ago and has been studying and practicing philosophy ever since.

Peter has been preparing and presenting philosophy material to people outside the body of the School through an ongoing partnership with Yarra Libraries since World Philosophy Day in November 2019. The first, programme, ‘Philosophy Begins in Wonder’, now presented by fellow students, continues to attract interest.

This latest, ‘Philosophy, the Path Less Travelled’, after its first run through the Yarra library, now comes home to School.
