Online Learning Format

The School of Practical Philosophy is offering the Introductory Philosophy Course and other courses via an online, interactive-learning format. Not a text-based chat-room, this enjoyable format allows the entire class to be heard and seen via the internet. The introductory series of 10 sessions is offered three times a year: in January, April, and September. The online course, at one hour a week, covers the first five weeks of the traditional two-hour classroom’s syllabus.

Begins: Various dates — please check the schedule by clicking here.

Fee: The Introductory class is a gift…no fee.  All other classes are $50 for the ten-week semester.

About the Online Learning offering:

We have gotten numerous inquiries — either from former students who moved away from the cities in which the classes are offered in traditional classrooms, or from people who have heard or read about the school and want to attend but again are located far away from where the classes are held today.  At present, students attend the online classes from several continents (North America, Africa, Asia, Australia and Europe) and time-zones from Pacific (GMT-8) to Eastern European (GMT+2) to India (GMT+5.5) to Australia (GMT+10).
