‘An unexamined life is not worth living’ — Socrates.

For many today, philosophy has become a specialised topic studied in university departments, often with little practical relevance to one’s everyday life. Yet in both Eastern and Western traditions, we find thinkers who have understood philosophy as a passionate engagement with the core questions of human existence as well as a radical practice that enables human flourishing in this world. During this weekend course we will consider such an ‘examined life’ through the example and teaching of figures as diverse as Gotama and Epicurus, Montaigne and Sartre. This course is open to all and does not require any specialist knowledge of either Buddhist or Western philosophy. Our time will be divided between talks, discussion and periods of silent reflection.
