Who we are...
The Philosophy Foundation has a mission to involve as wide an audience as possible in the aims and practice of philosophy. We do this by facilitating philosophical conversations, and sharing philosophical principles, skills and techniques in schools, workplaces and public forums. We are experts in the rules of reasoning for all subjects – from playground politics to the mysteries of existence and all points in between.
What you will learn about
Arguments have rules: the rules of logic. Everything we say to make a point is either valid or not, according to these simple rules. What happens in everyday life, however, is that these rules are obscured by complex topics and emotions. Anyone who learns the rules can use them as a way of getting discussions back on track. We’ll be exploring pure logic as well as discourse analysis and the psychology of argument – all in ways that non-experts can understand and enjoy.
