The Bath & Bristol School Of Practical Philosophy

The Bath & Bristol School Of Practical Philosophy is overseen by Mr Peter Debyshire. It offers regular introductory courses in practical philosophy, and other occasional courses and events.

Many people who attend the introductory course decide to continue their study and practice of philosophy, and there are ongoing classes to provide for this. The opportunity to take up the practice of meditation is offered after a few terms attendance.

It is a branch of the School of Economic Science, a registered educational charity founded in 1937 and regulated by the Charity Commission founded in 1937. The original subject taught by the School was economics, however, in the 1950s philosophy became the main study and has remained so ever since.

As the school began to grow many other branches in the UK and worldwide have emerged. The School is a centre of spiritual and practical knowledge and enquiry. Its aim is to help individuals lead a fuller, richer and more useful life. The main subject explored in the School today is practical, living philosophy, based on the philosophy of Advaita, or unity.

Courses in economics with justice are also offered at some locations. These aim to show how a more equitable distribution of wealth can be achieved while leaving the world in as good a condition as we find it, or better. In addition, the School offers a range of other courses, seminars, workshops, concerts and lectures.  Information about these appears on the main school web site.
