How do I decide? Which is the right choice? Can I learn to make consistently good decisions?

Decision making can be challenging for all of us. During our lives we are presented with many choices, some will be life-changing, others will be perhaps more routine or mundane. Every choice we make inevitably has consequences, so it makes sense to gain some understanding and guidance on how to go about making those choices.

Plato’s dialogues are a gold mine of knowledge on this very subject. Plato’s main character, Socrates, declared to be the wisest man in the world in 399 BC, said that he had an inner voice that guided him. Do we all have an ‘inner voice’? If so, how do we gain access to it? How do we hear it? How do we interpret what it’s saying?

We will spend the day at the feet of these two great masters, and discover what they teach us in relation to these most important questions.

  • “The point of philosophy is to challenge you, to make you uncomfortable. It’s to fix the illnesses of the soul, of the mind. Even though there are passages of Meditations that are soothing and reassuring, a lot of them are jarring, a lot of them are uncomfortable or make you think a lot, and a lot of them you might instinctively disagree with. But that’s the point of philosophy: it’s not supposed to be your instructor, it’s supposed to be a kind of medicine.

  • If you only do one course in your life, this is it!
  • The course opened my eyes to a completely different way of thinking and approaching life. I learnt life lessons.
  • The school draws on content from diverse sources and presents it in a cohesive structure to support a given theory that is for the benefit of all. In drawing on such diverse content sources the theory presented is given more weight and feels more inclusive.
  • Thank you, as it has enhanced my life!
