About the course

Without awareness in and of the present moment, it’s impossible to see the way forward. We cannot act freely, so we react with knowledge from the past or desire for the future. Either way, we are simply recycling experience. The thing is to be, here and now, instead of constantly becoming something other than what we are. The course also deals with the relationship between the past, present and future, and the relationship between cause and effect which arises out of this relationship.


Presence of mind is the working surface of practical philosophy. Presence of mind involves a consideration of the faculties of mind that are available to us. We consider questions such as:

  • What does it mean to be really present, now?

  • What are the powers and capabilities of a human being living in the present moment?

  • What is contained in the present moment?

  • Can philosophy work at any other time than in the present?

  • What can be learned from the past to prepare for the future?
