All instructors at the School of Practical Philosophy are also students who have been studying practical philosophy for many years. They have discovered in their own experience that philosophy works — that the uses of philosophical wisdom are limitless and real. In conducting and leading classes, their aim is simple — to foster each student’s journey of self-discovery. Instructors at the School are not paid; they offer their services for the benefit of the School and its community. Their personal and professional backgrounds vary as widely as the students they serve.
