Philosophy-What is it Philosophy?


This Lockdown Life from 4.30 pm to 6 pm explored ‘Philosophy - What’s It All About?’ With John Durston co-facilitating this session with me, we started off with one of our famed quizzes, then watched a short, animated video about the origins of philosophy. Next, we considered some of the great philosophical figures from around the world from ancient to modern times including the contributions of some key black philosophical thinkers, before watching another short video on Socrates, to help us discuss why he is often considered the ‘father of philosophy.’ We rounded up the session with an activity that enables participants to work through simple philosophical questions.


As Descartes famously said, ‘I think therefore I am.’
