Story of the great minds - Hypatia, a Light in the Face of Ignorance

Thursday 6th November at 7:30pm

Hypatia, a philosopher, mathematician and astronomer from the 4th century AD, illuminated the School of Alexandria with her wisdom, intelligence and inquisitive free spirit. Her life and her ideas have left an eternal imprint on the human history. We’ll take a look at this courageous woman’s life and teachings.

“Reserve your right to think, because it is preferable to think incorrectly than not to think at all.” - Hypatia

Philosophies of East and West Course

Starts on Thursday 13th November at 7.30pm & Saturday 15th November at 10.30am
evening courses
To be a philosopher in life
Distinct from an academic approach, true Philosophy or Philo Sophia, the Love of Wisdom is a way of living which can be practiced in daily life. Accessible to all, a philosophical approach gives meaning to our existence and allows us to face life with more awareness, presence and sensitivity. By comparing the philosophies of both Eastern and Western traditions we can uncover the keys to understanding and expressing the best of our selves. Though based on the ideas of great philosophies, what is proposed is not an intellectual exercise rather a practical journey of self-development which enables us to discover, to marvel and to motivate ourselves to act more justly. Each class has a practical aspect where everyone is invited to participate with simplicity and humour. To see ourselves in action, or even through the benevolent eyes of others, is the key to gaining self-confidence and to better oneself. These practical exercises are a first approach to the unspeculative philosophy that we propose, and are integrated within 16 classes of 2 hours a week.

Course fee: €160\€120 (under 26, students, unemployed, seniors)
Duration: 16 classes (once a week)

It is in that spirit that we invite you to the following activities:

3.00pm: The teachings of Confucius
