Philosophy - What is it?

Philosophy, or ‘the love of wisdom’, has been around for centuries, considered at times to be essential to social cohesion and at other times, the playground of the idle, but do we know what philosophy is. Is it really something that can be defined and if so, how? Was Socrates correct in saying that ‘the unexamined life is not worth living’? [Some of the philosophers we will be discussing: Aristotle, Plato, Kant, Marx] [More]

Philosophy of happiness

What is happiness and is it achievable? We hear about fulfilment, life balance, and contentedness but do these constitute happiness? We can address some of the questions that Socrates asked: What is the best way to live? Why be moral when immoral people seem to benefit more? Is happiness satisfying one’s desires or is it virtuous activity? [Some of the philosophers we will be discussing: Socrates, Epicurus, John Stuart Mill] [More]

Philosophy, law and ethics

The philosophy of law is called jurisprudence. Such philosophy asks questions like, why do we imprison criminals? Is our tax system fair? Does law support what is right or what is legal, and is there a difference? What role does civil rights/liberties have in a society? Can, and should, law encourage virtues, why/why not? [Some of the philosophers we will be discussing: Jeremy Bentham, Adam Smith] [More]

Philosophy and society

Humans, as social creatures, are drawn to live together, yet philosophers are divided on how to best achieve a functioning society. Some societies appear to be based on utilitarianism, while others hold liberalism dear. Is there a right and a wrong way to live in a society? [Some of the philosophers we will be discussing: John Locke, Immanuel Kant, John Rawls] [More]

Philosophy for the modern age

Is philosophy dead? We hear about Aristotle, Plato, Socrates, and the rest, yet it can all seem so long ago. There are modern day philosophers who are discussing big issues, like artificial intelligence, feminism, climate change, global concerns, freedom of speech, but are they actually saying anything new or are they simply rephrasing the archetypal philosophies of old? Is what they say accessible by the average person, and should it be? [Some of the philosophers we will be... [More]
