Lecture addressing the questions: What is philosophy? Is it a search for wisdom, truth or knowledge? What is the value of philosophy?
In this lecture we will disinter a little of philosophy’s hermetic meaning as we tackle that often infuriating question: What is Philosophy?
We will then go on to consider such questions as: Is it a search for wisdom, truth or knowledge? Is it simply an esoteric academic discipline, or can it really tell us something about the meaning of life?
