Weeks 9 & 10: The desire for truth

Dates: 21 September - 6 December
Where: 11 Mandeville Place, W1U 3AJ

What we’ll cover in this session

Practical philosophy is about discovering the truth of things – not theoretically, but in our own experience.

In this final session we look back and ask ourselves how our search for truth has fared as the term has progressed. We discuss what has been discovered and how, in our own way, we may continue to develop it in our daily lives.
