Philosophical Techniques for Laypeople: A toolkit for existential problems
existential – of or pertaining to life and experience
Life has a custom of providing people with issues, which is all well and good until an issue becomes beyond our ability to solve on our own – then it becomes a problem.
And when the problem becomes unmanageable some seek solution via the mental health system. Others seek advice from their clergy.
However, not every problem is a psychological or spiritual problem. Philosophy offers another choice.
Philosophy differs from other ways of addressing existential problems by its thoughtful, overall systematic approach and its reliance on developing a deeper understanding.
This 8-week workshop provides instruction on philosophy as practically applied to everyday existential problems. Philosophical concepts pertinent to existential problems are presented. Participants are furnished with a set of approaches that allow for problems to be taken apart to the point a solution may be found. Related to each concept, specific techniques are practiced in online sessions.
No previous philosophical knowledge is required.
