The School of Philosophy, Melbourne is hosting an enlightening 10-week introductory course starting this September, which explores the meaning of wisdom, truth, consciousness, the real nature of Humanity and what inhibits its development.

Presented in branches in Melbourne City, Hawthorn, Croydon, Geelong and Ballarat, the curriculum draws on the great philosophic ideas of both East and West, past and present, which, when put into practice, lead to clear thought, reduction of stress, and effective action in work, study and every aspect of everyday life.

The course is suitable for all, regardless of one's education, age, race, political or religious beliefs. No previous knowledge of the subject is necessary.

If you are interested in attending the upcoming spring term from September 17th to November 19th, please secure your place today at

The fee is $250 for a 10 Week Course, $200 for Concession and $60 for Full-time students.
