The Great Divide: Eastern and Western Philosophy

0 out of 5


Early philosophies have had a profound impact on the development of the distinctive cultures across the world. Assumptions about the nature of self, ethics, the goals of life are deeply embedded in our cultures and frame our thinking without our being aware of them. To travel around the world’s philosophies is an opportunity to challenge the beliefs and ways of thinking we take for granted. By gaining greater knowledge of how others think, we can become less certain of the knowledge we think we have, which is always the first step to greater understanding.

Join our online event where Dr Julian Baggini will discuss the most fundamental concepts of Eastern and Western philosophies and learn how ideas of self and others affect our life views, perceptions and decisions.
