The London School of Philosophy
As is unsurprising in view of the way that present UK government policy has led to a serious assault on the humanities many philosophers, myself included, have looked to establish a new life for philosophy outside established university structures. Along these lines I have discovered the existence of the London School of Philosophy, an initiative launched by seven people who were formerly employed by Birkbeck College and have determined to offer independent non-government-funded education for the people of London. This initiative is fully deserving of wider support and certainly is something that more people need to know about. The curriculum on offer is very moderately priced and will be delivered at Conway Hall. Anyone in London who wishes to undertake short courses that will give them a grounding in a wide range of philosophical matters should certainly look at their offer and consider enrolling. All power to such a venture, may it survive and prosper!
