Monday 4 February 2013
A free practical philosophy course, ‘Philosophy for Life’, is starting on Tuesday 5 February from 6-8pm at the Lock-Keeper’s Cottages, Mile End.
Jules Evans, Policy Director of QM’s Centre for the History of Emotions, is delivering the six week course which is an introduction to the practical and therapeutic ideas of ancient philosophers, and how people use them today. Topics will include ‘Socrates and the art of knowing yourself’, ‘The Skeptics and the art of doubt’ and ‘Plato and Aristotle’, and their contrasting visions of the role of philosophy in politics.
The course is free to attend and there’s no need to register, just show up on the evening, but be warned – spaces are limited! For more information on the course, visit Jules Evans’ website.
