Philosophy for Beginners is a series of non-academic, user friendly philosophy courses. You have the opportunity to explore the ‘big questions’ of life with a group of others. You explore, discuss, put your views forward, and generally have fun.

Philosophy is something many people find interesting. People sometimes ask questions that probe beneath ordinary, everyday matters, such as: ‘How did I come to be here?’ ‘What makes a good life, or a good person?’ ‘Is there a God?’ or ‘What makes some things right and others wrong?’ These questions are Philosophical Questions. If you like the idea of discussing these kinds of questions, Philosophy for Beginners will interest you.

Philosophy for Beginners

Philosophy for Beginners consists of a series of 4-week courses. Each course is delivered over 4 consecutive weeks. Sessions last for 2-hours, with a short break for refreshments. You receive notes for each session so that you have a record of what was presented and discussed.

The first course in the series Philosophy 1 explains what Philosophy is and its major areas of interest. Subsequent course build on this by further exploring topics in more detail. Each session consists of a powerpoint presentation, a break for refreshments and a period for discussion. The location of the venue will depend on numbers at the time, but will be in or near Hobart.

Philosophy for Beginners is ideal for people who have never done philosophy before. You explore thought-provoking topics. Topics are explained in simple language so you can understand them easily. But you’ll also learn some philosophy terms that you’re likely to come across so you know what they mean when you do.
