For those wishing to continue with the exploration of practical philosophy, further courses are offered by the Melbourne School of Philosophy, which serve to expand and deepen students’ appreciation of the search for wisdom. Practical philosophy, indeed, is not so much a subject of study as a way of life, and thus these courses provide the opportunity for ongoing exploration. There are many students around the world who have been attending the School’s courses for several decades!


The first nine courses offered by the School, each of which lasts for ten weeks, explore the following topics:

Introduction: Wisdom – An exploration of the meaning of Wisdom, and what it means in practice to live wisely.

Happiness – What is happiness, and how may it be found? This course explores the principle that true happiness comes from within.

Love – Perspectives on the universal nature of Love, and how to free up the natural flow of love.

Presence of Mind – Explores the meaning and value of wakefulness, and presents insights on how to live in the moment and make the most of life.

Freedom – This course examines how true freedom can only be found when we are freed from the tyranny of limiting ideas, beliefs and habits.

The Way of Action – An exploration of how to engage with the world but not get entangled by life’s challenges.

The Way of Devotion – This course explores the meaning of true devotion, and how an attitude of devotion helps on the path of self-development.

The Way of Knowledge – What is true knowledge, and what is the role of reason and discrimination in the process of self-development?

The Way of the Householder – This course demonstrates how the pursuit of practical philosophy can be harmonized with a fully active and engaged life, and how philosophy can add to the richness and enjoyment of daily life.
