Make life make sense
The aim of philosophy is to set people free; free from pressure and free from worry; free to grow, and free to be themselves.
The School of Philosophy exists to help you create sustainable happiness. For those seeking answers to life’s big questions, we share knowledge and practical tools to help you to lead a satisfying, happy life through evening, daytime or weekend classes in both Glasgow and Edinburgh.
Our introductory courses in Practical Philosophy explore how philosophic wisdom, accumulated over millennia from the world’s philosophic and religious traditions, can be applied effectively in our everyday lives. Behind their rich diversity, and when put into practice, many of the great world traditions are found to display a remarkable underlying unity. It is this unity that provides the starting point for our study journey.
We are delighted to be able to resume local in person courses in both Edinburgh and Glasgow. National online courses will continue to be offered. Check out the link for dates and times. Welcome to the School of Philosophy and Economic Science
