The Online Philosophy Course

The Royal Institute offers free 10-week philosophy courses from time to time, and this term, given current restrictions, we'll be working entirely online.


The sessions have ended this academic year, but we'll post word here soon about upcoming courses.


These courses take up some of the main themes and problems of Western Philosophy, exploring themes relating to knowledge, reality, mind, and value. It should be accessible even to those with little or no prior experience of studying philosophy.


The format will typically involve a lecture followed by some class discussion, and each week you will be given some recommended reading in advance of the class to introduce you to some of the key themes.


When another course is planned we'll let you know how to apply here.
