(All Courses Now Available Online)

Unless stated otherwise, all our classes are capped at a maximum of six people. This is because we find the best approach to discuss philosophical issues in-depth is in an intimate way with active participation from all present.


Long Courses (Twelve Sessions)

Our long courses offer an in-depth look at the subject areas in question whether this be an insight into philosophy itself or specific fields within philosophy. They take place over the course of three months and consist of twelve lessons as well as associated readings and coursework.

A ten week course that covers the fundamental basics on how to practice philosophy. Starting with an exploration of what philosophy is and what it can be, we will explore some of the following topics:

  • How to read philosophy
  • Critical Thinking
  • Effective Argumentation
  • Issues in philosophy
  • Philosophy in the modern world

Using a mixture of practical tasks, and discussion activities, by the end of course you should be able to think about things more effectively whether practical or more abstract. Moreover, the course will introduce students to interesting problems and help them to engage in current debate, as well as to understand and critically engage with thinkers of the past and present.

From everyday interactions and consumer choices, to the way that companies and countries behave, ethics is a fundamental part of life.
On this course we will go over introductory theoretical elements, as well as more practical ethical tools. The course includes:

  • An in-depth look at the most commonly used ethical frameworks (Consequentialism, Deontology, Virtue Ethics)
  • Historical perspectives on ethics
  • Ethical decision making in day-to-day life
  • Criticisms of the main ethical approaches as well as the concept itself
  • Discussion and argumentation based on honing ethical sensibilities
By the end of course, you will be able to correctly identify, apply, and critically evaluate the main moral theories as well as gaining an understanding on how to implement them in your everyday life.

Since ancient times, philosophy has never been merely nor entirely a theoretical practice. All our courses at Anthropos aim towards being practical, however, only in this course are the links between practice and theory the explicit focus. In this course we will explore:

  • What it means for philosophy to be a way of life
  • The types of practice that can be considered philosophical and how to apply them within your own life
  • Critical evaluations of different ways of life that are inherently philosophical, stemming from different philosophical traditions
  • Why it is important to live an intentional life
  • Your own lives, and how there may already be elements of philosophical practices within them
  • How you can incorporate philosophy and philosophical practices into your own day-to-day life
By the end of the course, you should be able to understand to a far greater extent the role that philosophy already plays within your life, and how you can expand and fortify certain practices depending on your own values. You will also have a greater appreciation of the connection between practical exercises and beliefs and a greater understanding of the importance of living in a congruent and authentic way.

Health and Happiness are commonly thought to be vital components of a good life. However, it is less often that we ever think about what these words mean and how the themes that arise from these concepts can be implemented and understood. As part of this course we will look at:

  • The meaning of happiness in terms of wellbeing, flourishing and other concepts
  • What it means to be healthy – going beneath the surface of conventional understanding and analysing the concept in greater depth
  • How cultural considerations influence both terms and their corresponding frameworks
  • The differences between satisfaction, pleasure, and emotion, when it comes to happiness
  • Mental health and mental illness, while exploring whether the current medicalisation of the discipline need be the only approach
In undertaking a series of discussions, practical tasks and in-depth analysis, upon conclusion of the course you will be able to understand what happiness means to you. This ought to facilitate the realisation, or at the very least, understand better the concept in your own life. Regarding health both mental and physical, you will be able to have a greater understanding of what they mean and how they are by no means unidimensional concepts.

Depending on the level of demand at any one point, the following courses are also run.

  • Ethics and Justice (Global Perspectives)
  • Bioethics
  • Political Philosophy
  • Freedom, and the Meaning of Life
  • Philosophy of Health and Happiness
  • Environmental Ethics

Short Courses (Four Sessions)

Our short courses are designed to function as a crash course in the specific subject area furnishing students with a good understanding of the question at hand in the minimum amount of time. Whether focussing specifically on practical skills or a broader understanding, by the end of the course you’ll gain a lot of knowledge in only one month.

Despite being essential for reasoned argument and being one of the most talked about skills whether at a high school, university, or business level, critical thinking is one of the least practiced skills. In this short course you will learn to:

  • Understand what an argument is and how to apply and identify them correctly
  • Justify and critically evaluate your own and others’ arguments
  • Understand and mitigate against common biases
  • Evaluate and undertake more rigorous forms of discourse

Environmental concerns have always been present in the cultural discourse to a certain extant, but never so much as now when the damage is so great, as is, correspondingly, the consciousness. In this short course, you will:

  • Be introduced to a brief history of the field
  • Be able to understand the main currents in the current discourse
  • Be better equipped to engage in issues not only in environmental ethics, but in wider environmentalism
  • Gain greater understanding in the ethical problems surrounding environmental issues.

With an ever increasing amount of media and societal attention, it can be surprising to see a lack of tangible action. Rather than fall prey to hopelessness and despair, a better understanding of the issues will help you understand why more isn’t being done, and what you can do on a collective and individual level in order to change things for the better.
