What is Young Philosophers Club?

Young Philosophers Club is where we think and talk about some of the most interesting and puzzling things in life. Through games, stories and thought experiments you will discover how deep these ideas go.

At Young Philosophers Club there's no such thing as a silly question or answer. 

The clubs are led by TPF trained philosophy specialists and if you join you will:

  • Learn to unpick challenging, abstract ideas.
  • Think critically and independently
  • Develop confidence in speaking
  • Become better listeners
  • Collaborate and manage conflict effectively
  • Get a certificate at the end of the course.
  • Have fun with philosophy!

We ran the first Young Philosophers Clubs in Autumn 2022, here's what some of the young philosophers who took part had to say about them:

"My daughter was blown away by the sessions as they triggered her imagination and pushed her to develop her own thoughts about different subjects. She can’t wait to do it again."

"She seems to be way more confident than before and she seems to be more interested in things in general and she is not afraid to speak up."

"This is such a unique activity and I would wholeheartedly recommend this to parents with inquisitive students who are looking for something to challenge them."

The next Young Philosophers Clubs

We'll be running more Young Philosophers Clubs in September 2023. Sign up for our newsletter here to be the first to hear about them or email Kim kim@philosophy-foundation.org for more information.
